Green New Deal: Una Asamblea Pública

Español
18 de octubre de 2019

El cambio climático, siendo una crisis desigual y de injusticias sistemáticas, es un desafío lleno de interrogantes, tanto para académicos, profesionales, y miembros de la comunidad por igual. El Green New Deal—mejor conocido por su redacción en US H. Res. 109 y S. Res. 59, y que resuena con los oficiales elegidos y activistas alrededor del mundo—aborda esas preguntas de una forma directa, enlazando la equidad, el medio ambiente, y la economía a las transformaciones necesarias para enfrentar crisis climática.

“The Green New Deal: Una Asamblea Pública” se enfocará en modelar debates democráticos que consideran seriamente las ambiciones y los retos del GND, pensando sistemáticamente y en varias escalas. Este evento público incluye talleres de trabajo en la mañana, en la tarde y una serie de discusiones para fomentar un intercambio productivo entre los invitados de distintas disciplinas y el público general. Un itinerario detallado y la lista de participantes se actualizará regularmente en Eventbrite.

Al estar ubicado en el Museo de Queens—situado en el corazón del distrito más diverso del país y donde podemos encontrar la maqueta “Panorama of the City of New York”— “The Green New Deal: Una Asamblea Pública” se llevará a cabo dentro del Distrito NY 14 del Congreso de los Estados Unidos, jurisdicción de la patrocinadora de la Resolución del GND, la Representante Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Este evento está organizado por el Museo de Queens, el Instituto Americano de Arquitectos de Nueva York (AIANY), el Lobby de Arquitectura, Francisco J. Casablanca (¿Quién Nos Representa?), y Gabriel Hernández Solano (Organizador del GND), en conjunto con el Temple Hoyne Buell Center for the Study of American Architecture en Columbia University.

En el Buell Center, “The Green New Deal: Una Asamblea Pública” forma parte del proyecto “Power: Infrastructure in America” (Poder: Infraestructura en América), dentro del cual el Centro está organizando una serie de iniciativas curriculares, investigativas, y programáticas que consideran los entornos sociales, técnicos, y políticos de una propuesta ambiciosa, pero en gran parte indefinida.

Se proveerán servicios de interpretación en español para la asamblea de la tarde, comenzando a las 13:00. El Museo de Queens hace un esfuerzo para ser accesible a todos los visitantes. Para más información sobre acceso y cualquier otra solicitud, por favor visite la página web del museo.

The Architecture Lobby
Founded in NYC in 2013, The Architecture Lobby is an organization of workers in the architecture industry and allied disciplines advocating for the value of architecture in the general public and for architectural work within the discipline. The Lobby has a national presence in the U.S. with over a dozen active chapters; in 2019, the first international chapter was formed in Victoria, Australia. The Architecture Lobby believes that the work architects do—aesthetic, technical, social, organizational, environmental, administrative, fiduciary—needs structural change to be more rewarding and more socially relevant. The Lobby believes as long as the discipline of architecture tolerates abusive practices—in its workplaces, in its schools, and on the building site—it cannot insist on its role in and for the public good.
