About LANY

LANY Goals

LANY Founding Members are concerned citizens seeking seed funding from Charter Members to create infrastructure to meet our goals of improving and protecting the environment of NYC through the use of Living Architecture Technology.

In addition to enlisting Charter Member support, LANY welcomes and is seeking to engage volunteers to join in supporting the organization to meet its goals to make NYC a healthier and cleaner place to live for all its inhabitants.

Timing is critical, as New York City policymakers are poised and ready to make positive changes to improve the lives of their constituents through meaningful legislation to encourage green walls + green roofs. LANY will be a valuable and reliable ally and resource of information for these policymakers to make the best decisions and policies to improve the environment and health of the urban landscape.

Charter Members will be honored at a Launch Event on March 15, 2017 to kickoff LANY’s introduction to the NYC Metro area community.
