BWRC Breakfast Talks: Green Gentrification:
Urban Sustainability & the Struggle for Environmental Justice

Join us for a lively conversation about environmental justice and gentrification along the Brooklyn waterfront when professors Kenneth A. Gould and Tammy L. Lewis discuss their new book, Green Gentrification: Urban Sustainability and the Struggle for Environmental Justice. Their book explores the social consequences of urban “greening” from the perspective of environmental justice and sustainable development. Gould and Lewis will explain how “greening,” which is meant to improve environmental conditions in neighborhoods, generates a kind of gentrification that pushes out the very people it was meant to help.
