CUE Turns 30 - Celebrates with Big Green Gala!

As the BK Eagle Reports, the Center for the Urban Environment, or CUE, which is known for its educational programs in collaboration with schools and its tours of city neighborhoods and parks, moved earlier this year to 168 Seventh St., a LEED gold-certified facility in Gowanus. At the same time, it changed its name from the Brooklyn Center for the Urban Environment to the Center for the Urban Environment because it now sponsors programs throughout the city. And now, on Monday night, the organization will celebrate its 30th anniversary with a “green-tie” affair at its offices, starting at 6:30 p.m. Honorees will include Sarah Beatty of Green Depot; Ronald Chalusian of New Visions for Public Schools; Helena Durst of the Durst Organization; and Marcel Van Ooyen of the Council on the Environment of New York City. The event will have lots of great green touches like catered food sourced from local farms, a virtual journal which will save paper, and literally green ties made from audio tape ribbon!
