Governors Island Celebrates Climate Week NYC 2022
Sep 19, 2022 1:23 pm
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 climateweeknyc.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.
