About the event
** EVENT SOLD OUT - Watch out for new NYC and US CCC events to be posted soon for 2019/20 **
So the day has finally come - Climate Cocktail Club is crossing the pond and kicking off the New York Chapter (NYC)! Taking advantage of the energy Climate Week has to offer, the inaugural NYC will showcase some of the finest actors in the climate and sustainability space - not to debate (there is no debate on these topics), but to provide a war cry for renewed climate action.
The event hosts a panel of globally renowned leaders and a room packed to the rafters of engaged enthusiasts from across the private and public sphere, kindly lubricated by an open bar. Innovation and inspiration is the order of the day, and we'll have that in spades. The event will be packed to the full 150 capacity!
