Monday, September 19th-Monday, September 26th: Climate Week NYC

From 19-26 September 2011 – less than seventy days before the United Nations’ climate summit in Durban and in the critical run-up to Rio +20 – New York City will once again become the epicenter of the Clean Revolution.

Climate Week NYC is an annual summit boasting high-level meetings between the world’s leading businesses and governments and an exciting array of public-facing events, all focused on driving a ‘clean industrial revolution’.

A Clean Revolution is a swift and massive scaling-up of clean technologies which will help create jobs and economic growth, securing a better, smarter and more prosperous future for all.

In just two years, Climate Week NYC has become a key moment on the international climate change calendar. Now in its third year, Climate Week NYC brings together The Climate Group, Carbon Disclosure Project, China Center, PlaNYC, the United Nations Global Impact, the UN Foundation, The City of New York, The New York Academy of Sciences, TckTckTck and an array of international business, government, non-profit and thought-leaders to call for urgent action against climate change.

We’re excited to report that this year’s agenda is really taking shape, so keep an eye on our events for updates on the latest activities and events as they’re confirmed.
