Opening Ceremony

Climate Week NYC 2017 will be launched at a high profile Opening Ceremony on Monday, September 18 at The Morgan Library. Hosted by The Climate Group, the Opening Ceremony will bring together global leaders from government and business to explore the themes of Innovation. Jobs. Prosperity

2017 has been a remarkable year for climate action, with a loud, global drumbeat of innovation, investment and action, on critical areas, such as clean energy and electric vehicles.

This year’s Climate Week NYC is set to be incredibly exciting – the first major gathering of international climate leaders since the US announced its withdrawal from the Paris Agreement. It will bring together businesses, states and cities and the international community now leading global climate action.

Previous participants have included Tim Cook, CEO, Apple; Ban Ki-moon, former Secretary-General of the UN; John Kerry, former US Secretary of State; Sir Richard Branson, Founder, Virgin; and Christiana Figueres, former Executive Secretary of the UNFCCC; among others.
