NEW YORK: Today The Climate Group begins its 20-day countdown to Climate Week NYC 2015, marked with the announcement of a mass-tweet and launch of our new digital video channel. You can follow our countdown on hashtag #CWNYC.

Since we launched Climate Week NYC in 2009 it has become a key moment in the international calendar, bringing together leading governments, investors, businesses, innovators and opinion formers to drive a low carbon economy.

Host to more than 100 affiliate events from September 21-28, this year Climate Week NYC is also the collaborative space for climate events in support of the UN Summit to adopt the Post-2015 Development Agenda.

Following last year’s success of reaching 150 million people on Twitter and 1 billion people through traditional media, Climate Week NYC 2015 has the opportunity to achieve an even bigger impact.

During The Climate Group's Climate Week NYC ‘countdown’, which runs from September 1 until the opening of the week on September 21, we will release a series of announcements, briefing reports, high-level interviews and major commitments from business and sub-national leaders online. Visit our website daily for the latest releases.

The countdown begins today with the announcement of a mass-tweet, called a Thunderclap, which will be automatically sent from the accounts of all those who sign up to mark the first day of Climate Week NYC. By signing up to the Thunderclap here, you will send out the following message on September 21:
