Food for Thought: Hiking and Sustainability

@BFPLNY Instagram Live

The year 2020 was like no other, and we found ourselves pressing pause, pivoting, disconnecting, and disengaging. Moving forward in 2021, we are coming up for air and figuring out how we press play on our lives.

The Food for Thought series continues its pursuit of three goals – to restart, revive, and reconnect. This month’s topic is sustainability and hiking. Join the conversation on Thursday, August 19 at 12:30PM ET on @BFPLNY’s Instagram Live, with speakers Haley Toy & Gary Huey from Leave No Trace who will provide tips on how to enjoy nature responsibly and limit your footprint.

We want to hear from you!

Submit a question anonymously for the speakers to answer during their discussion on August 19.

Similar to last year, the Food for Thought series features influential voices from various fields and the public is invited to directly engage in the conversation by submitting a question anonymously in advance of the event.

WATCH the event on @BFPLNY’s Instagram Live, as part of Brookfield Place’s digital programming.
