UN CLIMATE WEEK
THE NEW SECRET SPOT - 241 W 14TH ST, NYC
A Bridge to Impact

Impact is too often segregated into its various sectors. Whether it's climate week, or a regenerative agriculture event or a clean energy association.
The Transformative Impact Summit helps bridge this divide, bringing together change-makers, impact organizations and investors from together to collaborate and connect while providing funders with a curated showcase of world-class projects, efforts, and innovations they can engage with.

Indigenous and Local Solutions Around the World
Indigenous communities account for 80% of global land stewardship. These organizations have developed unique solutions to their unique and challenging circumstances. We’ll be highlighting their success stories as well as their as we feature leading solutions from Africa, South and Central America, Asia, Oceana, and more.
Inner Development, Mental Health, and Social Connection
Inner change is as much a part of our path forward as outer change. We’ll explore how we can nourish our mental health, foster social connections, and focus on our own grounding, growth, and development to build a world that works for all.
Given the rapid rate of change, our educational institutions are struggling to adapt to the needs of students and communities alike. Beyond skill development and employment prep, can we re-imagine how education can align impact, purpose and values into the very fabric of learning.
