Governors Island to be home to $700 Million climate education and jobs hub: Mayor


SUNY Stony Brook University has been tapped to operate a new $700 million climate change-focused research, education and jobs center slated for an undeveloped section of Governors Island, Mayor Eric Adams announced on Monday.

As part of the city’s efforts to combat climate change, the 400,000-square-foot hub, which will be run by the newly formed “New York Climate Exchange,” promises to offer a broad swath of green education and workforce training programming, according to the mayor’s office.
