Funders Guide to Climate Week NYC - On Topics Like The Rise of Subnationals and Beyond

This program is for grantmakers only.

This September 18-24 marks the 9th Annual Climate Week NYC, a time when leaders from around the globe gather in support of the Paris Climate Agreement and the UN Sustainable Development Goals. This summit coincides wth the UN General Assembly, and engages over 500 million people around the world through 100-plus events across our city.

What’s going to get discussed? How might that be relevant to your philanthropy goals?
