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 organizations 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.
The Nest Summit is now a proud event partner of Climate Week NYC and is honored to contribute to the mission of expanding climate action here in the U.S. In 2020, the global pandemic actually expedited that. The Nest Summit’s virtual event featured over 100 climate thought-leaders and was broadcast from the Javits Center in collaboration with Climate Week NYC. Over a million viewers interested in making a difference watched the program! In 2021, we aim to expand our reach further all while reconnecting and reviving the climate community in the great city of New York.
