    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.

    About the Tishman Environment and Design Center

    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 "eco-friendly." At the Tishman Center and The New School, sustainability is truly cross-disciplinary, incorporating and collaborative space that brings together stakeholders from a variety of disciplines, schools, and populations. It will be a communication bridge between the university's operational sustainability efforts and the university community. We serve as a collaborative resource center and academic convener for environmental justice groups, community leaders, design, and climate experts to create discourse, dialogue, and action on today's most challenging issues.
