Climate Week NYC will take place this year from September 23 to 29. Run in coordination with the UN and the City of New York, Climate Week continues to grow as the time and place for the world to showcase amazing climate action and discuss how to do more. The anchor events of Climate Week are growing, and the number of events in 2019 is set to far exceed the 150 events of 2018 – the largest ever. Climate Week is run by The Climate Group, the international non-profit focused on accelerating climate action.
Supporting the Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit
During Climate Week this year, the UN Secretary General will be holding a Climate Action Summit (held every 5 years) on the Monday. We are happy to announce that Climate Week will support the Summit by providing a space for leading organizations around the world to extend action far and wide outside of the UN building and throughout the whole week.
In 2019, the week-long series of events at Climate Week will be organized around programs reflecting the core pillars of the UN’s summit. We invite businesses, governments and civil society to host events on the areas of energy transition, industry, finance, cities and regional action, natural solutions and resilience/adaptation – further program categories will be announced in due course. We will coordinate with the Secretary General’s office – allowing for multiple additional linked events and for everyone to have the chance to take part in this huge moment.
In addition, the Climate Week Hub, due to being massively oversubscribed in 2018, will extend to two days – allowing a fantastic physical space for businesses, states, cities and the whole diverse frontier of global climate action to come together.
