Climate change is the challenge of our time. Effective response requires broad and deep public participation.
To that end, we are launching a climate museum in New York City that will serve as a beacon for the optimism, creativity, and ambition needed for leadership in a challenging world.
The Paris Agreement of 2015 holds shining promise for humanity’s transition to a clean energy economy and culture. The Climate Museum will play a vital role in building community engagement to make that promise real. Now and going forward, an informed, concerned, and confident public will drive sustainable progress at every scale.
The mission of the Climate Museum, as adopted by our Founding Board of Trustees in January 2016, 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.
