Climate Summit - CAN & CARE.

19 09 2019 | 13:31

Climate Action Network (CAN) will host an online press briefing to set civil society’s expectations for the UN Secretary General Climate Action Summit that will take place on Monday 23 September, 2019. Consecutive scientific reports from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) have been sounding the alarm about the climate emergency we are currently facing and we are fast approaching irreversible tipping points. Governments must now act faster than ever to respond to the climate emergency with stronger targets and deeper emission cuts. Delayed action is as good as denial.

In this press briefing, CAN members will outline adequate response measures to the climate emergency and set clear expectations for ambitious government commitments through the coming year and up to the 2020 deadline.

Thursday, September 19. 12:00PM New York local time (Eastern Standard Time) | 4:00PM UTC/GMT | 5:00PM London | 6:00PM Berlin
