What is Climate Week NYC 

Climate Week NYC 2022 marks its 14th year as the biggest global climate event of its kind. Bringing together the most influential leaders in climate action from business, government and the climate community, in conjunction with the United Nations General Assembly and the City of New York, Climate Week NYC creates an ambitious platform for our mission to drive climate action. Fast.  

As the organizers of Climate Week NYC, Climate Group hosts a main program of in-person events in New York which include the Climate Week NYC Opening Ceremony, Climate Leaders' Reception and The Hub Live. In addition to this we bring together over 500 events spread across ten themes, in New York and around the world, as part of the wider Climate Week NYC events program.  

Climate Week NYC is all about Getting It Done. Through celebrating climate action, challenging ourselves to do more, and exploring ways to increase ambition, Climate Week NYC inspires, amplifies and scrutinizes the commitments, policies and actions of those with the power to make change happen. Through our own core events, opportunities to engage with our partners, and the Climate Week NYC events program, we invite you to be a part of the biggest climate event on Earth. 


Climate Week NYC, by Climate Group

As hosts of Climate Week NYC, Climate Group hosts a series of events which form the main program of the week. The Climate Week NYC Opening Day and The Hub Live bring together a global audience of senior leaders from business, government and the climate community. 


Climate Week NYC Opening Ceremony

Monday, September 19

The Opening Ceremony and Leaders' Reception launches Climate Week NYC each year. This is a chance for heads of state, government officials, CEOs, and civil society leaders, to share their global outlook on climate change and climate action.  

This year, we’re back in person in New York, and we’re putting climate in context of today’s world. We’ll explore global security, climate, and how they are connected challenges. We ask what’s stopping us from getting it done and how we rebuild a more equitable economy. 


The Hub Live 

Tuesday – Wednesday, September 20 - 21 

The Hub Live is back and we're in person. We'll reconnect and rethink climate action to 'Get It Done', this September  

We’re gathering over 1,000 international decision makers and leaders from business, policy and civil society to drive climate action, fast. Taking place in New York City across two days, this year’s The Hub Live is in person, under one roof.   

Connect and collaborate to ‘Get It Done’ 

Across the two days you’re invited to join a variety of networking and interactive sessions; from open discussions and debates to closed door roundtables, collaborative workshops and networking receptions.
