We have the tech, tools and cash. So why is the gap between what people say and what they do getting wider? How is progress on halving emissions being slowed down? What, and who, is stopping us from ‘Getting It Done’? Commitments won’t deliver themselves. We must follow through on promises and we need to show the world how. 

This session will examine: 

  • How do we ensure climate commitments are delivered?   

  • What ‘gaps’ are widening and how do we stop them? 

  • Why hasn’t fossil fuel investment stopped? 

  • What are the barriers blocking breakthroughs? 

This session is part of the Opening Ceremony for Climate Week NYC on September 19. Get more info on the other sessions of the day on the Opening Ceremony page, as well as the themes and events taking place as part of The Hub Live on September 20-21.
