The Tishman Environment and Design Center at The New School fosters the integration of bold design, policy, and social justice approaches to environmental issues to advance just and sustainable outcomes in collaboration with communities. The Tishman Center addresses the increasingly urgent need to integrate design and environment to confront climate change and its social impacts. The Tishman Center is committed to fostering an environmental philosophy and an understanding of sustainability that digs deeper than simply championing the concepts of being "green" or "ecofriendly."
At the Tishman Center, the study of sustainability is truly cross-disciplinary. The center serves as a collaborative space that brings together stakeholders from a variety of disciplines, schools, and populations. It also acts as a communication bridge between the university's operational sustainability efforts and the university community. The center serves as a collaborative resource center and academic convener for environmental justice groups, community leaders, design, and climate experts, fostering discourse, dialogue, and action on today's most challenging issues.
