Mission

Climate change is the challenge of our time. 

 
 

We need an informed, confident, and motivated public to drive sustainable progress. And we need a place where people can come together to learn, connect, and be inspired.

The Climate Museum in New York City will be that place. It will serve as a beacon for the optimism, creativity, and ambition needed to address this urgent challenge so critical to each and all of us.

Our mission, adopted by our Founding Board of Trustees in January 2016:

To employ the sciences, art, and design to inspire dialogue and innovation that address the challenges of climate change, moving solutions to the center of our shared public life and catalyzing broad community engagement.
