Sep­tem­ber 19 – 25, 2022, marks the four­teenth annu­al Cli­mate Week NYC, the biggest glob­al cli­mate event of its kind — an entire week ded­i­cat­ed to tak­ing action in the face of cli­mate change to ensure a bet­ter, more sus­tain­able future. Orga­nized by The Cli­mate Group in con­junc­tion with the Unit­ed Nations Gen­er­al Assem­bly and the City of New York, this year’s pro­gram­ming cen­ters around the theme Get­ting it Done.” 

The week is packed full of events — both vir­tu­al and in-per­son — held by a host of lead­ing cli­mate orga­ni­za­tions, includ­ing some Gov­er­nors Island part­ners and ten­ants. Check out the full sched­ule of events online at cli​mate​week​nyc​.org.

Whether it’s through mon­u­men­tal pub­lic art com­mis­sions that engage direct­ly with the cli­mate cri­sis, the cli­mate solu­tions lit­er­al­ly built into the Island’s award-win­ning, 43-acre park, or the vibrant com­mu­ni­ty of ten­ants and part­ner orga­ni­za­tions lead­ing cli­mate work in inno­v­a­tive and equi­table ways, Gov­er­nors Island is a hub for cli­mate edu­ca­tion, arts, cul­ture, and oth­er pro­gram­ming every week of the year. We look for­ward to fur­ther expand­ing oppor­tu­ni­ties for edu­ca­tion and research, encour­ag­ing pub­lic engage­ment in the cli­mate cri­sis, incu­bat­ing equi­table solu­tions, and grow­ing NYC-based green jobs through the Cen­ter for Cli­mate Solu­tions on Gov­er­nors Island. Vis­it gov​is​land​.org/​c​l​imate to learn more about this vision and fol­low along with us on social media all week long for a look into every­thing that helps make Gov­er­nors Island a sus­tain­able community.
