"It's the battle for our lives", says United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres about the fight against climate change. Climate change is the defining issue of our time and tackling it will require an urgent and unprecedented effort and mobilization from all sectors of society. The United Nations is calling on all leaders to come to New York on 23 September 2019 to participate in the UN Climate Action Summit and present their plans to enhance their national contributions to address climate change.
It is in this context that we are proud to invite you to the RESHAPE Task Force, the first simultaneous transatlantic workshop organized by the BCSD Portugal, the Global Shapers New York Hub and the Global Shapers Lisbon Hub aiming to unlock the contribution of local businesses to solve the global climate crisis. In New York, our event will take place at Anheuser-Busch's Commercial Strategy Office located at 125 West 24th Street on the 12th Floor.
Throughout this event you will be inspired and have the opportunity to connect with NY businesses who want to be part of the solution to the global climate crisis. You will be part of workshops that will enable you to tap into the collective wisdom of all participants, highlighting the biggest promises and opportunities for the unique role your organization can play. You will walk out of the event more inspired to take action, equipped with ideas on projects, partnerships and policies your organization can support and a supportive community of allies.
This event is part of the State, City and Local Action program of Climate Week NYC.
