The Opening Ceremony attracts CEOs, government ministers, governors, mayors and investors from around the world. They are shaping markets and setting policy to make climate action a reality. Past speakers have included Ban Ki-moon, Tim Cook, John Kerry, Christiana Figueres, Tony Blair, Amina J. Mohammed and Richard Branson. This year, we expect our distinguished speakers to include senior leadership of the UN, global CEOs and national leaders.
Climate Week NYC 2018 will provide the first opportunity to delve into the ramifications and renewed direction resulting from the Global Climate Action Summit that takes place earlier in the September. Businesses, cities and states are coming together over this period to step up climate leadership, and will be calling on their peers and governments to do the same – to put the world on-track to achieve the Paris Agreement.
Climate Week NYC 2018 will be a key moment for global climate action. The Opening Ceremony is one of the most critical events in the climate calendar and will set the agenda in a crucial week for those making the changes needed to meet the Paris Agreement. Taking place just a few blocks from the United Nations General Assembly, The Opening Ceremony also plays an important role in bringing together world leaders from both the business and political spheres to act on climate.
