47. sign the town on to the united nations urban environmental accords
In 2005, I was fortunate to help draft the United Nations Urban Environmental Accords. At that year’s U.N. World Environment Day, 75 Mayors from around the globe met for the United Nations World Conference of Mayors. On behalf of the Village of New Paltz, I signed the original Accords, joining dozens of mayors from cities like London, Rome, Moscow, Kiev and Kampala, Uganda.
