High Level Meeting of Caring for Climate


Join the UN Global Compact, the UN Environment Programme, UN Climate Change and the COP25 and COP26 Climate Champions together with leaders from business and finance, from sub-national government, civil society, and the United Nations at the eighth annual High-Level Meeting of Caring for Climate for a conversation on ways to collectively ramp up climate action in the lead up to the five year anniversary of the adoption of the Paris Agreement.
This year, the gathering will build momentum towards the virtual Climate Ambition Summit on 12 December 2020 co-convened by the United Nations, the United Kingdom, and France, in partnership with Chile and Italy, in which national governments are set to announce ambitious new commitments under the Paris Agreement. The Caring for Climate Meeting will rally leadership to support a healthy, resilient, zero carbon recovery that prevents future threats, creates decent jobs and unlocks inclusive, sustainable growth. 
Leaders representing initiatives such as the “Race to Zero” and“Business Ambition for 1.5°C”will engage in an interactive dialogue, taking stock of progress since the Paris Agreement, discussing strategies for a green recovery to tackle today’s twin crises of the COVID-19 pandemic and climate change, and exploring ideas for strengthening inclusive multilateralism.
