The Climate Group
September 23 - 29, 2019
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 NYC 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 NYC this year, the UN Secretary-General will be holding a Climate Action Summit on the Monday. 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 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.
Opening Ceremony, Monday, September 23
The Climate Group will host the Climate Week Opening Ceremony on the morning of Monday September 23, ahead of the UN Secretary General’s Climate Action Summit later that day. Annually, the event attracts CEOs, government ministers, governors, mayors and investors from around the world who are shaping markets and setting policy to make climate action a reality.
In 2018 speakers included world leaders such as the Prime Minister of New Zealand, Jacinda Ardern and the President of Peru, Martín Vizcarra, as well as Governor Brown of California, the CEO of Ricoh, Jake Yamashita, the CEO of ENEL, Francesco Starace and the President of Microsoft, Brad Smith, among others. All spoke of the dramatic and exciting changes being made in their industries.
