Living Lab

Gov­er­nors Island is itself an exper­i­ment in cre­at­ing resilient coastal land­scapes with a new 43-acre park designed to address pro­ject­ed sea-lev­el rise and dozens of edu­ca­tion­al and cul­tur­al part­ners engag­ing in these issues. The Liv­ing Lab, estab­lished in 2023 and led by the Trust for Gov­er­nors Island, is a new plat­form for research, part­ner­ships, and pro­grams to ampli­fy cli­mate action that includes the fol­low­ing components:
