A few guest comments about last year’s event, which was a first-of-a-kind NYBG event in sustainability innovation:

  • “Positioning NYBG to be a convener of this important global conversation around climate is a welcomed endeavor and was well executed.”
  • “It was a wonderful evening in a truly wonderful place.”
  • “Bringing together corporate, nonprofit, media, and individuals to discuss these critical sustainability topics is a great idea and the first time I have attended a gala of this type.”
  • “An excellent event with thoughtful conversation and smart company. Well done!”
