Great Things Happen

When We Work Together.

The Power of Collaboration

When like-minded organizations join forces with similar goals and desires – great results happen. This is precisely how The Nest Summit was born. Created to advance sustainability, The Nest was founded in 2019 by supporting organization’s The Javits Center, NYC & Company, and The Climate Group. The inaugural event attracted many organizations eager to share their important research and proved to be a successful networking center during Climate Week NYC.

One year later, The Nest Summit was proud to play an important role in contributing to the largest global climate summit in 2020! Our virtual summit featured over 100 climate thought-leaders and was broadcast from the Javits Center in collaboration with our partner FINTECH.TV, and viewed by thousands of people interested in making a difference.
