Proposal: The New York Climate Exchange

Stony Brook University’s bold vision for Governors Island is an Exchange: a public platform touching every aspect of New York’s economy, culture, social fabric, and international influence.

For generations, the New York Stock Exchange has been the world’s busiest and most important financial market, as well as a driver of the city’s economy. Now it is time to create a new marketplace for investment and collaboration, one that helps the city address today’s crises while producing innovative ideas that will pay future dividends to the city, our environment, and the people who most need us to meet this moment.

The New York Climate Exchange Powered by Stony Brook University will generate transformative environmental, economic and social solutions to the climate crisis by creating partnerships with local schools and institutions, and convening thought leaders and key stakeholders — including previously excluded communities — to develop solutions for the most critical climate change issues facing our city and our planet.
