ABOUT:The Natural Resources Defense Council is a leading environmental advocacy group driven by a simple principle: people and our planet deserve to be protected.  Using science, law, policy and the political power of our 1.4 million members and activists, NRDC endeavors to build a cleaner energy future, protect against pollution, defend endangered wildlife and lands, and develop sustainable communities for generations to come. Our lawyers hold polluters accountable in court, our scientists back them with facts, and our policy experts design solutions that are changing our world.  This evening’s event celebrates another key driver of change: the power of art and technology as an instrument to create a cleaner and healthier planet.
