Basically, the Long Island Regional Planning Council (LIRPC) helps Long Island see its own big picture.

We are grateful for their commitment to addressing nitrogen pollution through their “Long Island Nitrogen Action Plan (LINAP)”, and their endeavor to get the next generation involved through a STEAM Challenge that invites students in grades 6-12 to be a part of the solution.

The STEAM competition is open to any NYS accredited educational institution in Nassau and Suffolk Counties that serves students in grades 6-12. Letters of interest are due January 10th

This September 2020 study on major economic impacts of COVID, and this other from last June 2021 about preparing the next generation workforce for the future while also helping overcome racial inequities are fascinating and informative.

It’s good stuff to know about.
