Taking Action

Sunday, Oct 27, 2019

Young people around the world are demanding that society confront the climate crisis with a new level of urgency — the urgency required for them to have a future without dread. They are demanding intergenerational justice + giving us all an opportunity to rethink and recommit.

This new youth movement inspires our exhibit featuring hands-on learning about solutions for the climate crisis; a space to understand barriers to their implementation; + a concrete invitation to meaningful civic engagement and collective action.

Sponsor: The Climate Museum

Date: June 1 – October 27, 2019 Taking Action will be staffed primarily by high school students, open 11am–9pm on Fridays and Saturdays, 11am–5pm on Thursdays and Sundays prior to the end of the public school year, with extended hours during the summer months.

Location: Nolan Park on Governors Island
