Every year since 2008, governments, businesses and organizations meet in New York City for Climate Week NYC. With this year’s event scheduled to take place just weeks before the U.S. presidential election, its theme is “For a more prosperous America.”
According to the event website, “Climate Week NYC is an annual summit bringing together the world’s leading businesses and governments and an exciting array of public-facing events, all focused on driving a swift, massive scaling-up of clean technologies to create jobs and boost the economy.” The week-long initiative will officially launch on Monday, September 24, 2012 and run through Sunday, September 30.
What makes Climate Week NYC such an important event? Climate change poses very serious threats to America and its communities. As we look forward, we must work harder than ever to create a sustainable future for U.S. families.
