When New York acts, the world follows. There’s so much we can all do. Let’s meet the challenge of climate change and make it happen, NYC. Join us on Governors Island for Our Future Festival NYC, a day of talks, presentations, workshops, art, performances and discussion. Our focus is on New York and how we can all participate in preparing for a resilient future. Meet scientists, activists and artists. Experience Governor's Island purpose-built climate resiliency and meet NYC’s climate leaders. Get involved. Be part of the movement for our future. The New York City Metro Chapter of the Climate Reality Project and Human Impacts Institute in collaboration with The Trust for Governors Island present a daylong festival of events on Governors Island as part of Climate Week NYC 2019, Global Goals Week 2019 and concurrent with the UN Climate Action Summit 2019. This groundbreaking event highlights local action and opportunities for New Yorkers of all ages to take climate action, and to show the world how we can all be part of the movement for change during this historic week. 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.

Pulitzer Hall, 2950 Broadway, New York, NY 10027 Joseph D. Jamail Lecture Hall, 3rd Floor
Rural communities are often at the frontline of climate variability and change, and climate services can enable these communities to make better farming decisions. Climate services provide farmers access to climate information, translated into actionable advice, that, together with financial services, empower them to adopt climate-smart practices to manage risks, build resilience, and improve their lives and livelihoods. This has been the focus of the decade-long collaboration between the International Research Institute for Climate and Society (IRI), Earth Institute, Columbia Universiy and the CGIAR Research Program on Climate Change, Agriculture, and Food Security (CCAFS). This partnership has enabled advances in climate services and decision support tools for smallholder agriculture in the developing world that neither IRI nor CCAFS could have achieved independently. Join us for a special opportunity to discuss what has been accomplished through the partnership as well as how emerging IRI and CCAFS activities could help raise ambition and accelerate action for enhanced resilience and adaptation across the world. Presentations from 1:30 to 4:30 PM, with reception to follow.
