There is one month until Climate Week takes place in New York City Sept. 17-24. Now in its 15th year, this is a big week for the sustainability world, bringing together thousands of stakeholders for hundreds of events across the city.
In this episode of the ESG Insider podcast, we’re diving into Climate Week: What it is, why it matters, and what to expect. We speak to Angela Barranco, Executive Director for North America at Climate Group, the nonprofit that organizes Climate Week in partnership with the UN General Assembly and the City of New York. She’ll tell us what themes will be covered and also how Climate Week has evolved over the years, and what needs to happen for the week to be a success.
“Climate Week is one week of the year, but this is a 52-week, 365-day effort," Angela tells us. "We need to get out there and utilize these moments to create momentum to bring resources to do the hard work. But the hard work goes on every single day.”
We also talk to Britton Jones, Founder and CEO of The Nest Climate Campus, a three-day event taking place Sept. 19-21 as part of Climate Week at New York City’s Javits Center, bringing together companies, NGOs, government, academia and the community at large. ESG Insider will be on the ground conducting interviews at The Nest Climate Campus during Climate Week.
