Accelerating NYC’s Net Zero Journey

Watch Pioneer the possible live on We Don't Have Time

Multi-national representatives from business, politics, academia, public and private sector, and civil society will come together to present existing, science based solutions needed to achieve the Paris Agreement and bridge implementation gaps in both the global north and south.

This event aims to highlight the significance of cities, which account for more than 70 per cent of global greenhouse gases. It will clarify opportunities and necessary actions, using New York City's net-zero target as a guiding example for global climate action.

Join this high-level meeting live on We Don't Have Time and get a glimpse of what life in New York City could be like in 2050, and how we can pave new ways forward to realise climate commitments and accelerate climate solutions exponentially.

This broadcast is part of The Climate Hub at Climate Week NYC. Full day-by-day program.
