The growing concern among the New City’s community brought Mayor Bill de Blasio and the trust of Governors Island to join hands to address the already deteriorating climate condition in the city. Governor Island with its spectacular views, casting a lovely shadow on the Manhattan Skyline now become the center of study on climate change. The center of study invites universities and research institutions to address the perils of climate change while proposing sustainable measures or ways to combat climate challenges in the city. The plan; unveiled in Nov 2020 will capitalize on the Newyork City talent pool aims at fostering a green environment, equity, High paying jobs, and public awareness.
If you are a graduate of environmental sciences or a member of a research institute, you have a good chance to apply for this opportunity because calls for proposals are open until September 29th. The competition aims at creating over 7000 direct new jobs. The initiatives like We Runs Brownsville and Environmental center at Governors Island help the community uplift at providing job opportunities since Covid strikes us heavily especially in Private sector jobs.
But here the question arises whether the authorities issue sufficient grants to materialize the program in true sense, given that unemployment rate surged and in some areas like Brownsville; the current employment rate dwindled nearly four times to pre pandemic period. Similarly, the research institutes cut down supporting budget, meager scholarship opportunities open to avail. Women solopreneurs run a family while managing to get feasible transportation to avail opportunity.
lastly; Governors Island, as far as I know, is now open to the public. If you are on a regular visit and intend to come here for more information, you must take public safety precautions such as social distance and wearing a public mask. I see people bringing in disposable food cans and drink bottles. Visitors are welcome seven days a week.
