From June through October, the Climate Museum returns to beautiful Governors Island to present an exhibition inspired by youth leadership on climate. Hosted in the Island’s Nolan Park, this exhibition invites visitors to explore interactive installations to learn about clean energy and other proven mitigation strategies, as well as the main impediments to our transition to a carbon-free economy and culture. The show celebrates the young people around the world who are telling the truth about the climate crisis and the vital role of youth in leading us toward a climate-safe future.

This new wave of leadership urges us all to make a fresh start in our approach to the crisis, and at the end of the exhibition, visitors choose from a range of commitments and actions to break the climate silence and advance climate progress. The show was highlighted by The New York Times in its recent article on climate arts.

The exhibition will be staffed primarily by high school students. It will be open 11am-9pm on Fridays and Saturdays and 11am-5pm on Thursdays and Sundays prior to the end of the public school year, with extended hours during the summer months.
