Climate Action 2016
The Climate Action 2016 summit, will take place eight months after the adoption of the Sustainable Development Goals by all the governments of the world, and five months after the UNFCCC conference of parties in Paris sets a new international framework for climate action. In this context, the summit will deepen and expand the action coalitions of government, business, finance, philanthropy, civil society and academic leaders launched at the UN Secretary-General’s Climate Summit 2014 in New York, and seek to make this broad-scale organization of climate action both more effective and sustainable.
Day One, held at the University of Maryland inside the Washington, DC, beltway, will focus on convening working groups for breakout sessions on near-term implementation actions and long-term implementation needs. Day Two, held in downtown Washington, DC, will drive high-level engagement with global luminaries addressing plenary sessions on how to deliver on climate commitments and embed the transformation agenda across the globe in government, key sectors and among the general population.
Registration will open at a later date.
