While the coronavirus has shifted the world’s attention to responding to the global health emergency and mitigating its economic and social impacts, the climate crisis remains a very real and urgent threat to our planet.

Coming on the heels of President Joe Biden’s Earth Day summit, this international gathering of top government officials, industry leaders and issue experts including, among others, U.S. Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry, California Governor Gavin Newsom, and the European Commission's Director General for Environment Dr. Florika Fink-Hooijer, will highlight strategies and innovations for viable, cross-sector solutions to meet urgent climate targets.
