A world's fair of sustainability

The Marketplace of the Future is the annual closing event of Climate Week NYC in September. However, since it's now virtual, the world will remain open for free exploration! We will be releasing a program schedule soon, and in the meantime, please enter and visit the booths, find hidden climate facts by Project Drawdown, and send us a message if you'd like to learn more.

For the first time, the Marketplace of the Future will be an online event in a world that combines the charm of nostalgic video games with the modern connectivity of Zoom.
