The Climate Museum
The Climate Museum’s mission is 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. Located in New York City, the museum launched its first exhibitions and programming over the last year. Our future permanent home will provide a dedicated space for engagement with climate issues and solutions.
It is past time for a museum dedicated to climate change in New York City—and the United States. Climate Signals was a step toward creating an institution to ignite citywide, nationwide, and global discussion on the critical challenge of our time.
The New York City Mayor's Office - Climate Policy & Programs
New York City, under Mayor de Blasio’s leadership, continues to lead the globe in the fight against climate change. The NYC Mayor’s Office Climate Policy and Programs team leads NYC’s fight against climate change and manages the #OneNYC program for inclusive growth and climate action. NYC was the first city to align itself with the 1.5 Celsius target of the Paris Agreement and is investing over $20 billion to increase resiliency by adapting neighborhoods to climate change risks. At the same time, NYC is holding fossil fuel companies accountable by divesting the City’s pension funds from fossil fuels and suing the five investor-owned fossil fuel companies most responsible for climate change.
