Building a Resilient Future

The New School, New York, NY

September 22, 2019

Building a Resilient Future is full day event designed to support the UN Climate Action Summit.

We are in living in a period of increased volatility and unpredictability.

Climate change is affecting food security and political stability. Extreme weather events are occurring more frequently, exacerbating resource scarcity, forced migration, and conflicts.
If the current approach to development is not re-shaped, global aspirations toward a resilient future will not be achieved, leaving behind the most vulnerable and marginalised communities. Alongside action to limit emissions and transform towards low carbon development pathways, urgent action to build resilience is vital for achieving nearly all of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 

Dedicated to reinforcing the focus on resilience and the commitments expected to be made at the UN Climate Action Summit, this event will feature innovative, interactive and participatory sessions for participants to share their actions and commitments for a transformative and resilient future. Participants will learn from each others experiences and discover how to embed resilience into actions and achieve the SDGs.
