In support of the UN Youth Climate Summit, the Carnegie Climate Governance Initiative (C2G) hosted a series of interactive games for young climate leaders exploring how society might tackle difficult decisions about whether or not to deploy climate-altering technologies to tackle global heating. Climate Interactive led a thought-provoking “Model-UN-like” negotiating game with the latest En-roads Climate Solutions Simulation – a powerful new interactive exploration of the combined effects of different policies and technologies on the amount of CO2 in the atmosphere, and on global temperatures. The session was held at the offices of Carnegie Council for Ethics in International Affairs, New York City, September 22, 2019.
There needs to be a fundamental shift in the global approach to tackling climate change and the circular economy can play an essential role. 45% of global greenhouse gas emissions come from how we make and use products like buildings, cars and clothes, and how we produce food.

Mayors, entrepreneurs, innovators, students, scientists, dreamers and doers, there are many roles to play in shaping the world of tomorrow. The question that C40s Women4Climate initiative tackles is how do you empower individuals to think and act in a fundamentally different way? Through a global mentorship program dedicated to women in C40 cities; they aim influence the conversation through leadership events and create new momentum and interest among future leaders.
“Women make up more than half the world’s population, and although they are often disproportionately impacted by climate change, their voices are not always heard due to lack of inclusion and representation at the decision-making level. Now more than ever, enhancing women’s participation and leadership in the conversation around climate action will be critical to securing a healthy, prosperous and sustainable future for us all” (Women4Climate).
How do you empower the next generation of women to lead climate action and justice globally? Watch this session to find out!
This keynote talk was given at the 2019 Bioneers Conference.
Introduction by Kenny Ausubel, Bioneers CEO and Co-Founder.
The visionary goal of Project Drawdown, founded by Paul Hawken, is to actually reverse global warming by drawing carbon out of the atmosphere back down to pre-industrial levels. All the practices and technologies documented in Paul’s best-selling "Drawdown" book are already commonly available, economically viable, and scientifically valid. The true power of Drawdown is its holistic nature. Doing what’s right for the climate means doing the right thing across the board and will also create abundant, meaningful jobs and a vibrant green economy. For over 30 years, Paul has been at the forefront of transformative solutions for people and planet, including his highly influential books "The Ecology of Commerce," "Natural Capitalism" and "Blessed Unrest."

"It's a deep irony that the people growing our food face some of the biggest risks related to climate change," explains Civil Eats author Twilight Greenaway, describing the threats farm workers face from extreme heat, soil-borne illness, and more.
This is Laura. Earlier today, Laura was suspended below the Sydney Harbour Bridge to call attention to our climate emergency.
Laura grew up just down the road from an open cut coal mine, and she’s seen first-hand the effects of coal on her community’s health. That’s why she’s calling on Scott Morrison to declare a climate emergency and make the shift away from dirty coal.

Climate change denial draws headlines. But is it actually an obstacle to climate action?
A great majority of Americans say they're concerned about climate change.
The real roadblock is our unwillingness to pay money to help stop climate change.

If we really want to address climate change, we need to make gender equity a reality, says writer and environmentalist Katharine Wilkinson. As part of Project Drawdown, Wilkinson has helped scour humanity's wisdom for solutions to draw down heat-trapping, climate-changing emissions: obvious things like renewable energy and sustainable diets and not so obvious ones, like the education and empowerment of women. In this informative, bold talk, she shares three key ways that equity for women and girls can help stop global warming. "Drawing down emissions depends on rising up," Wilkinson says.
