There is no greater time than now for climate action

Thank you to all who joined us in person Sept 21-22! The virtual on-demand broadcast will be released Sept 25 online and to the inbox of all who registered.



Let's turn talk into action, together.

At a time when the cry for both connection and climate has never been louder, the more people who are aware of the existential threat of climate change and are empowered with the knowledge and solutions to make changes in their own communities, the faster we can make a difference.

The Nest Summit 2021

As a climate action 🌎 platform, we are a big believer that collaboration drives change. We also believe that meaningful conversation can inspire action, and that enlightening experiences really have the power to do good.  That's why, as the official event partner of Climate Week NYC, by the Climate Group, The Nest Summit is energizing the climate movement with a third annual in-person and virtual summit this September 21-22, 2021. The climate-committed doers and thinkers from leading companies, NGOs, government, academia, and the community-at-large are uniting during Climate Week NYC at The Nest Summit to share stories, discuss challenges, and spark climate action with the many innovative solutions and pathways to a sustainable planet.  We know that our forces for good are stronger together than they are apart — join the movement along with us ↓

The Nest Summit serves as an accelerator of diverse American climate thought leadership.  This year our ClimateConference will focus on four main themes: Clean Energy, Climate Risk & Impact Investing, Climate Arts, and Industry Changemakers Taking Climate Action 🌎

Activations for climate awareness where the arts, theater, creativity, and climate converge to bring attention to climate change and inspire empathetic action.

Knowledge sharing workshops educating individuals with tangible demonstrations and presentations about how to become part of high-level and everyday solutions to help heal the Earth.
