Climate Week

Climate Week NYC

The Climate Group has selected the Columbia Climate School as its University Partner for this year’s Climate Week NYC. Running from Sept. 20-26, Climate Week NYC convenes key climate leaders to accelerate climate action and discuss ambitious commitments ahead of the 26th UN Climate Change Conference, or COP26, later this fall in Glasgow.

Now in its 13th year, Climate Week NYC is a key time of year for businesses, governments, civil society, and the wider global audience to gather to showcase leading climate solutions and discuss how to do more, fast. It has been instrumental in creating global momentum toward climate action. Read the full partnership announcement
