WASHINGTON (APRIL 26, 2016)– The most significant gathering of sub-national and non-governmental leaders on global climate action this year will take place in Washington, D.C. on May 5-6. This event follows last week’s successful UN signing ceremony, where more than 175 countries signed the Paris Agreement on climate change.
The Climate Action 2016 summit will bring together 700 leaders from government, business, finance, academia, philanthropy and civil society to advance ambitious climate action across multiple sectors.
We will host a press call this Friday, April 29 at 11:00 a.m. EDT, to discuss what to expect at the summit and what actions are needed in the coming months on climate change.
