Last week several members of the Climate People team attended Climate Week NYC. This annual event brings together influential leaders in climate action from businesses, governments, academia, and the climate community.
The theme of the week was all about “Getting It Done.” It was a celebration of climate action, challenging everyone to do more, exploring ways to drive greater ambition, and providing a platform to increase collaboration, connection, and discussion.
It was an incredible week.
The reality of human-caused climate change is all around us. It’s impossible to ignore and yet the solutions are at hand to combat these problems. Overwhelmingly, the leaders we met were all about solutions.
