Finish Climate Week NYC 2022  with the South Street Seaport Museum by giving shape to your voice in a poster workshop outdoors on the cobblestones. Share the ways you have personally chosen to combat climate change by making a poster celebrating your climate-friendly decisions, no matter how big or how small.

Bowne & Co. printers will use antique 19th and 20th century equipment from the Seaport Museum’s working printing collection to create contemporary ephemera with climate change awareness messages. Prompts will be provided for visitors to add their own ideas on how to combat climate change. Participants will be invited to take their work home as a free memento of their visit, or to leave their work at Bowne & Co. to be hung in the storefront windows as a visible call to action for climate change awareness to the Seaport community.

Also board and tour visiting Tall Ship Danmark. See our guide to the Seaport.
