If you’re a budding or established journalist, photographer or social media influencer, and interested in covering this year’s Climate Week NYC, you can apply for exclusive access through our Climate Week NYC Press Pass. As well as attending a greater range of Climate Week NYC events, with official press accreditation you will have access to a suite of resources to support your work including:
- permissions to use official Climate Week NYC photography
- information about key events and opportunities to cover events
- an official press pass
- priority access to media releases and press notices in the run up to, during, and after the week itself
If you are a published content producer with a legitimate interest, or expertise in, issues relating to climate action, you are eligible to register for an official Climate Week NYC Press Pass. This includes if you’re writing about climate, business, politics, community matters or more generally New York City.
You need to be available and in New York City during Climate Week (24-30 September), and you will commit to producing at least two pieces of content that you will publish on your own channels and/or submit for publication by a third party. The Climate Group, as the host of Climate Week NYC, can support your content through our own social media channels, as well as publishing it on our media portal which is accessed by the global media community. We may ask permission from you to republish your work on our own website, with the appropriate accreditation, though this is not guaranteed. Climate Week NYC and The Climate Group does not seek ownership of any content produced; Press Pass holders are welcome to submit, publish and disseminate their own content as they wish.
Climate Week NYC and The Climate Group will provide accredited Press Pass holders with access to our media assets library and a range of resources, including use of official collateral (such as photography) to support your work. We will also offer priority to Press Pass holders in providing quotes and other information relevant to your work.
To apply for registration please fill in the form below and add up to three examples of your work.
Confirmation of accreditation will take place throughout the summer.
Please note that this press pass approval system is not intended for professional journalists and photographers already affiliated with the media. Professional journalists and photographers should contact Hannah Prime at firstname.lastname@example.org or (+)44 7912 514 445 to attend Climate Week NYC events or request interviews.
