Climate Week NYC

Climate Week NYC 2014 takes place from 22nd – 28th September 2014 at various locations across New York City. By providing an international platform for government, business and civil society to work together on low carbon solutions, Climate Week NYC intends to show the world that there are clear opportunities and many benefits in joining the global ‘clean revolution’.

One of the events taking place during the week is the UN Climate Summit on 23rd September at the United Nations Headquarters, NYC. UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has invited world leaders, from government, finance, business, and civil society to galvanise and catalyse climate action. He has asked these leaders to bring bold announcements and actions to the Summit that will reduce emissions, strengthen climate resilience, and mobilise political will for a meaningful legal agreement in 2015. Climate Summit 2014 provides a unique opportunity for leaders to champion an ambitious vision, anchored in action that will enable a meaningful global agreement in 2015.
