Upcoming Climate Events

August 15, 2023

This fall, the Goldman Environmental Prize is excited to attend climate weeks and summits around the world, joining global efforts to create faster and more meaningful change for our climate and planet.

We’re also thrilled to convene past Goldman Prize winners at each event, specifically those who were unable to travel to San Francisco during the Covid-19 pandemic.

Gathering leaders in fields such as policy, science, and industry, each week is an opportunity for regional networking, exchange of knowledge, and capacity building for the fight. It is imperative to bring the voices of grassroot environmental leaders to the table, adding their on-the-ground insights and local knowledge to the global discourse on sustainable development, climate change, and the protection of biodiversity.
