The Climate Justice Alliance, including the Indigenous Environmental Network and other allies, are planning a two-day People's Climate Justice Summit concurrent to the Climate Leaders Assembly convened by the UN General Secretary Ban Ki Moon in New York City this September. The Summit delegates will convene at the UN Church Center, directly across the street from the UN, and the proceedings will be livestreamed for public viewing at The New School on both days.

The purpose of this Summit is to convene a meeting of frontline community delegations from across the U.S. and around the world - that are both organizing against the root causes of climate change, and cultivating real solutions to address these causes. In response to the intransigence of political leaders in industrialized nations and corporations to take bold action, this convening will highlight strategies and pathways for resilience and resistance that are being built on the frontlines of this global economic and ecological crisis.

All panel discussion on this day will be held at The New School Auditorium, 66 West 12th Street.

Panel Topics include:

9:30-11:30 a.m.–Opening/Interpreting the Inside

12:30-2:30 p.m.–False Promises 2: Dams/Waste to Energy/Federal Policy

3:00-5:00 p.m.–False Promises to Living Economies: Climate Smart Agriculture vs. Food Sovereignty
