An exciting four-day festival during Climate Week NYC will bring together bright minds about the future of climate and our communities, including scientist and inventor Bill Nye!
From 10am to 6pm, between September 20 and 23, the Climate Science Fair by Emerson Collective will aim to encourage optimism and conversation with artists, students, entrepreneurs, scientists, leaders and more, who are doing cool things to better our response to climate change.
For example, festival-goers will hear from an artist who is turning vacant lots into neighborhood farms and a leader who is creating the world’s first hybrid-electric airplane, plus an organization planting millions of climate-resilient trees.
Bill Nye, specifically, will speak on Friday, September 22, at the High Line’s 10th Avenue Square about the optimism that exists as communities work to implement climate solutions.
“Climate optimism means being clear-eyed about the challenges before us, while drawing inspiration from those—like the participants at the Climate Science Fair—working to overcome them,” said Laurene Powell Jobs, the founder and president of Emerson Collective.
