Climate Week NYC 2012

Climate Week NYC is an annual global summit that takes place in New York City, aiming to mobilize climate action through a week-long agenda packed with diverse public-facing events and high-level meetings.

Now in its fourth year, Climate Week NYC yet again takes place at the key moment when hundreds of government, business and thought leaders converge on New York City for the United Nations General Assembly meeting, forming the perfect audience for us to showcase how innovative leadership and clean energy are changing the world. And this year it's election year, so we'll be calling for an American Clean Revolution, to help drive a low carbon economy for Americans, that is better, smarter and more prosperous. For all.
