Ban Ki-moon's Climate Summit And The People's Climate March
Experts from the two largest international climate change networks will brief media on political expectations for the upcoming Climate Summit in New York. Hosted by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon, government leaders from around the world will gather on 23 September to accelerate the ongoing transition from fossil fuels to renewable energies, as part of a global effort to tackle dangerous climate change and secure the new jobs, clean air and economic benefits their electorates demand.
Our panellists will also brief reporters on the People’s Climate March in New York two days before the Summit, related mobilization efforts taking place around the world on the same day, and messages from leading economists, business alliances, medical professionals, youth networks, faith-based organizations and indigenous groups who are all calling for climate action. Organizers are expecting hundreds of thousands to take to the streets of New York, making it the biggest climate march in history.
