Mission 2020: Andrew Higham, CEO of Mission 2020, as the Chair of the preparatory process for the Global Climate Action Summit, will review progress across the board, and provide an overview of efforts to build upon the Global Climate Action Summit to spur greater ambition by 2020.

The Under2 Coalition diplomacy initiative: Tim Ash-Vie of Climate Group will present a new diplomacy team that will amplify the political role of state and regional leaders in achieving climate goals.

The “EU We Are All In” Coalition: Eliot Whittington of the University of Cambridge Institute for Sustainability Leadership and the Corporate Leaders Group will describe this new EU initiative launched together with the European Climate Foundation that will build a coalition advancing the view that a long-term vision for a society and economy without emissions by 2050 is beneficial.

City business partnerships: The We Mean Business coalition will present a new initiative in partnership with C40, CDP and the B-team to promote collaboration between cities and businesses and discuss the potential for this model to accelerate local implementation of climate commitments.

The event will be moderated by Jason Anderson of ClimateWorks Foundation, who will also describe the new commitments made by philanthropy at GCAS, and its role in forwarding subnational climate action globally.
