Description

In 2010, the EPA placed the Gowanus Canal on its list of Superfund sites in New York state. In the years since, the agency has reached out to the Brooklyn community to inform and engage its citizens on what the clean up effort will look like. As the EPA's Community Involvement Coordinator for the Gowanus Canal Superfund, Natalie Loney, has been at the forefront of this effort. In this funny and informative talk, she carefully outlines the process for the Gowanus audience. In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
