This event is being held as part of The Nest Summit Campus 2022. Partnering with industry leaders to create an inspired, central destination for climate action is at the core of what we do. The Nest Summit Campus, official event partner of Climate Week NYC, brings together like-minded organizations and individuals to educate, inspire, drive change, and spark climate action among businesses, government officials, academia, NGOs, and consumers.

It’s all happening at the Javits Center during Climate Week NYC (September 19 – 23, 2022).

For the full agenda and schedule of events of The Nest Summit Campus, visit here.

Organizers: When like-minded organizations join forces with similar goals and desires – great results happen. This how The Nest Summit was born. Created to advance sustainability, The Nest was founded in 2019 by supporting organizations The Javits Center, NYC & Company, and the Climate Group. The inaugural event attracted many organizations eager to share their important research and proved to be a successful networking center during Climate Week NYC. The Nest Summit is now a proud event partner of Climate Week NYC and is honored to contribute to the mission of expanding climate action here in the U.S.
