Department of Education's Youth Climate Summit 2020 Was Inspiring 

Solar One was proud to participate in the NYC Department of Education's first Youth Climate Summit at the Untied Federation of Teachers in Manhattan on February 4th.

Green Design Lab Educator Amy Colorado led a hands-on workshop where students learned about energy and climate, while Stuyvesant Cove Park Manager Emily Curtis-Murphy talked to students about internships in the Park and waterfront ecology at the Summit's Career Fair.

It was inspiring to see so many NYC high school students become excited about climate science, waterfront resiliency and environmental justice! Congratulations to DoE for putting on a great event, and we hope to participate in may more Youth Climate Summits in the future!

Come See Remember Us: The Hungarian Hidden Children at Waterside Plaza on March 3rd

"Remember Us", a documentary about the Hidden Children during the Holocaust, will be shown at LDP at Waterside, 25 Waterside Plaza, on March 3rd at 6pm. 

The film features Evi Blaikie, a former Board member of Solar One, who survived the Holocaust in Hungary.  Evi will introduce the film and take questions afterward.

"Hidden Children" is the name given to countless children who survived the Holocaust by being placed out of harm's way, by finding sanctuary in the arms of strangers, through the assistance of friends and acquaintances or even soldiers.

Many of the survival stories seem miraculous. But survival at that time, under the circumstances, could indeed be seen as such. Many still wonder about their own survival. Visiting the past to regain the future, this powerful and hopeful film focuses not only on who these children were, but the adults they have become.

This event is free, but registration is required.
