Celebrate the 50th anniversary of Earth Day at this family-friendly festival focused on the science of climate change and potential solutions for a sustainable New York City. Explore how Museum collections provide a window into our shifting climate, how studying the atmospheres of other planets can reveal what’s happening here on Earth, and how design solutions may help mitigate climate change in coastal cities like our own. The festival features special performances, hands-on activities, and educational stations where you can learn about the past, present, and future of our beloved planet.
