This policy-pitch session on climate action will address the inherent tension between the possible and the desirable. While everyone agrees that massive change is necessary to meet the climate goals, the existence of low-hanging fruit (the possible) is too often crowded out by politically more attractive grand visions of systemic change (the desirable). To actively combat climate change, we need concrete and, above all, actionable measures now. Ambitious targets are good, but taking real action is better.
In this highly interactive session, prominent representatives from the worlds of politics, diplomacy and industry will share their ideas on how to win for climate — one step at a time.
Watch live at 11:00 a.m. on November 3, free of registration on nytclimatehub.com.
