Introducing Livable Streets Education

The newest member of the Livable Streets Initiative, Livable Streets Education (LSE),
partners with schools, cultural institutions and community-based
organizations working for improved urban livability, greener
transportation, and safer streets. This spring, LSE is in residency at
fifteen schools around New York City, working with students in grades
K-8, as well as partnering with community and cultural organizations on
special events.

This short Streetfilm provides an overview of the recent work
they’ve been doing – in particular, it highlights LSE Director Kim
Wiley-Schwartz’s work with grades K-2 at PS 87. Please check out the
website to see more on this groundbreaking curriculum. And to see some
of the amazing art produced by the students, refer to this page and videos.
