Confronting an Urgent Climate Crisis: The Facts and What We Can Do @ virtual

Nearly two years ago, the UN International Panel on Climate Change issued a stunning report stating that we have 12 years or less to avert far more serious climate disruption. Already we are seeing catastrophic fires in Australia and California and extreme storms and droughts around the world.

Climate scientist Prof. Stephen Pekar will explain the science, the dramatic steps needed to address climate change fast enough, and steps all of us can take today as individuals. This virtual event is part of our Cultural Arts & Jewish Heritage Speaker Series.

Click here to register. For more information, please email KStrauss@CommonpointQueens.org.

A complete list of fall speakers will soon be available at https://www.commonpointqueens.org/program/cultural-arts-and-jewish-heritage-events/.

LIC Real Estate Breakfast (virtual event) @ Online event- free to attend with optional donation

Long Island City Partnership’s Annual Real Estate Breakfast is the leading real estate event in Western Queens. For 14 years, we have brought together sold out crowds of leaders in real estate, finance, and the LIC community to discover current projects underway in LIC. For photos of last year’s event, please visit licqns.com/REB2019ALBUM.

After much thought and to ensure the safety of our community during the COVID-19 pandemic, we have made the decision to host this year’s event virtually rather than in-person. The event will be free to attend, with the opportunity to support LIC Partnership through an optional donation during registration. Our panel will highlight a mix of residential, commercial, retail and industrial projects, reflecting LIC’s unique blend of uses.
