#10Things Campaign Raises Awareness on Climate Action

Events, News, October 3 2018

NEW YORK, USA: Climate Week NYC launched the ‘10 Things’ campaign. The campaign has released each of the ten Things to raise awareness of climate change and accelerate climate action in the days between the Global Climate Action Summit (GCAS) and Climate Week NYC.

The GCAS, which took place in San Francisco, US, from 12-14 September 2018, brought together leaders from government, business and the global community to inspire greater global ambition to act on climate change. Climate Week NYC convenes on the side of the opening of the 73rd session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA), and seeks to drive climate action forward. The Week convened from 24-30 September 2018. Climate Week NYC then released one Thing each day from 14-23 September.

The ten Things are:

  1. Travel: This Thing encourages more sustainable travel and showcases sustainable tourism options. The Thing encouraged participants to share the most sustainable holiday they have ever taken, record a video about how their next trip will be more sustainable or tell visitors how to travel around New York City in a more sustainable way.
