Mayor Bill de Blasio and the Trust for Governors Island have announced a bold step to address the climate crisis and cement New York City’s leadership in equitable climate action: a global competition to establish a leading institution dedicated to developing climate solutions on Governors Island, a 172-acre former military base located in the heart of New York Harbor. The Institution will anchor the Island’s Center for Climate Solutions, a cross-sector hub of educators, researchers, innovators, and advocates that will prepare New York City and cities around the world for climate change. Starting in New York and creating equitable solutions for cities across the world, the Center will help ready neighborhoods for climate change, grow well-paying green jobs for all New Yorkers, and create space for public awareness and dialogue.
