Climate Week 2023 occurs between September 17th and 24th in New York City. During the event, business leaders, global decision-makers, and civil society representatives come together to discuss and promote solutions to fight climate change. This year's theme, “We Can. We Will.” is a call for collective action.
The UN General Assembly and Climate Week both take place in NYC. This means that while key global policy discussions are happening at the United Nations, there are also more than 400 events occurring across the city that are focused on addressing climate change.
Nia Tero will host and engage in several panels and discussions alongside our partners to highlight the importance of Indigenous guardianship of collective territories to tackle the climate and biodiversity crises.
As we participate in climate week, we honor the diversity of Indigenous understandings of place, language, culture, and ways of being. Indigenous Peoples sustain much of the world’s remaining biodiversity and healthiest ecosystems. Supporting the rights and livelihoods of Indigenous Peoples, and following their leadership, is key to the health of our planet.
