The road to the 2019 Climate Summit

To meet the urgent need to address climate change and achieve the goals of the Paris Agreement, UN Secretary-General António Guterres is convening a Summit in September 2019.

We are significantly under-estimating the benefits of cleaner, climate-smart growth. Bold climate action could deliver at least US$26 trillion in economic benefits through to 2030. There are real benefits to be seen in terms of new jobs, economic savings, market opportunities, and improved well-being for people worldwide.

The Global Climate Action Summit will bring leaders and people together from around the world to “Take Ambition to the Next Level.” It will be a moment to celebrate the extraordinary achievements of states, regions, cities, companies, investors and citizens with respect to climate action.

More than 100 heads of state and government will be attending the UN General Assembly. Climate change will be a major focus attention. Climate Week will take place during the week of 24-30 September, feature close to 150 events on climate change.

COP24 is the informal name for the 24th Conference of the Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change(UNFCCC).

Climate Week NYC is the time and place where the world gathers together to showcase amazing climate action and discusses how to do more.
