NYC Drawdown Group - are there any plans for September Climate Week, where we could join you? Are you meeting anytime at the UN? That is relatively easy for a group of us to get to from Drawdown East End.
As per the Irish Times - September will be a landmark month for global commitments to address the climate crisis. Countries that ratified the Paris Agreement have been summoned to New York by UN secretary general Antonio Guterres and asked to detail how they will ramp up ambition. It will coincide with renewed – and loud – protest across the planet.
The biggest climate protest staged in the US is likely to take place in New York leading up to the summit.
Greta Thunberg will be at the head of that march. Thunberg simply demands more urgency from politicians and greater commitment to demanding targets True to her commitment not to fly because of air travel’s carbon footprint, she left Plymouth this week in a solar-powered yacht.
Please let us know if there is a way we can join you.
