The New York City Metro Chapter of the Climate Reality Project and the Human Impacts Institute present Our Future Festival NYC, a daylong festival of events on Governors Island as part of Climate Week NYC 2019 and the UN Climate Action Summit 2019. This groundbreaking event highlights local action and opportunities for New Yorkers of all ages to take action on climate change, and to show the world how we can all be part of the movement for a more resilient and sustainable future. Participants will learn about how they can help build climate resiliency and be inspired to share this knowledge with others in their local communities.
The festival will feature informative talks and discussions by climate leaders, creative and fun workshops that spark curiosity and inspire belonging as it relates to our shared urban environment, climate-themed dance and theatrical performances, and much more. In addition, multiple organizations representing activism, the energy sector and climate education and communications will be stationed in Nolan Park throughout the day. And a series of guided tours and interactive walks will allow visitors the chance to explore and learn about Governors Island, from its urban farm to resilient new park, through the lens of climate change.
Located next to the festival site, the House of Solutions is another joint project of the Human Impacts Institute and the New York City Metro Chapter of the Climate Reality Project. Open from June-October 2019, the house will serve as an indoor hub for workshops and gatherings.
