Climate Week NYC 2014

Climate Week NYC is back for its sixth year. This global conference brings together leaders from a variety of sectors, including business, government, and non-profits to discuss ways to lower greenhouse gas emissions and mitigate climate change.

Organizers say this year’s conference will also serve as a “collaborative space for all related events in support of the U.N. Climate Summit”, which convenes in New York City on Tuesday, September 23rd.  Together, the two summits aim to bring “climate change back to the top of the world agenda.”

Climate Week NYC sessions, which run the gamut from high profile invitation-only meetings to free public events and activities, officially begin on Monday.  In addition, a number of events will take place in advance this weekend, including the People’s Climate March.
