Please save the date for 2018 Sustainability Summit and Dinner, to be held at the Garden on Thursday, November 1, 2018.
NYBG will be pleased to award the 2018 Founders Award for lifetime achievement in architecture to Lord Norman Foster, President of The Norman Foster Foundation and Founder and Executive Chairman of Foster + Partners, a global studio for architecture, urbanism and design, rooted in sustainability. Lord Foster’s standard-setting green buildings mark a new pinnacle in his career, raising the bar everywhere for sustainability excellence.
This event was made possible by organizations and individuals who share The New York Botanical Garden’s commitment to a sustainable future. The evening helps support NYBG and its 80 Ph.D. scientists who work around the world to advance plant research and conservation. If you would like to make a contribution to the event, please visit our donation page.
