Convening in the Name of Climate Change

No better place to be this week if you’re an Earthkeeper than New York City:

- Climate Week NYC is underway, bringing together business, government and NGO leaders to discuss climate action and the need to create a public/private response to climate change. To learn more about the Climate Week NYC events and speakers, visit their website. And visit our friends over at for complete Climate Week coverage, videos and environmental opinion pieces (including one from our CEO, Jeff Swartz).

- At the Clinton Global Initiative(CGI), influencers and opinion leaders from around the world are gathered to turn ideas into action to create practical solutions to some of our world’s most pressing issues — including those focused on energy and the environment. In support of the action-oriented mission of CGI, participants must make specific and measurable commitments to action; on Timberland’s behalf, CEO Jeff Swartz spoke at CGI today and committed to expanding Timberland’s reforestation programs in China’s Horqin Desert and in Haiti.

We’ll be featuring on-the-ground video coverage from CGI here on the Earthkeepers blog starting tomorrow.
