The purpose of the Day is to reinforce the focus on resilience and the commitments expected to be made at the Climate Action Summit. It will feature innovative, interactive and participatory sessions for participants to share the actions and commitments they are making to achieve a transformative and resilient future. This will enable participants to learn from each other on what they are doing and how to embed resilience into actions to address climate change and achieve the SDGs. The Day has four objectives:
To provide the opportunity for all stakeholders to commit to actions and initiatives to build a resilient future, and to explore how by breaking out of institutional and sector silos these can be greater than the sum of their parts.
To highlight actions that grassroots organisations are taking, and how these organisations, and in particular women, can be part of decision making to take these actions to scale especially in the Least Developed Countries.
To set out how the latest knowledge and understanding on resilience can be used to build and invest in adaptive, resilient and transformative communities and economies.
To provide a highly interactive space to explore and identify new strategies, collaborations, and partnerships to advance and track the implementation of the actions and initiatives announced on the day.
Access Cities is a Global Alliance for Sustainable Urban Development. Currently running in New York City, Munich, Singapore, and the two Danish cities of Copenhagen and Aarhus, the program aims to solve city problems through multi-stakeholder challenges and open innovation, as a way of accelerating technology and solution knowledge sharing between cities, and to offer better testing opportunities for vendors.
During the summer of 2019 Access Cities partnered with the City of New York for the Open Innovation Call on Air Quality and Urban Heat Island Effect – two of the most pressing challenges the City is currently facing.
We invite you to join us for the Pitch Finale and Award Show for the Call during Climate Week NYC, where up to 10 finalists will be invited to deliver their finale pitch to the judging panel consisting of 7 NYC Agencies.
Apart from pitches from the finalists, look forward to mayoral representatives from New York and Copenhagen discuss the value of city-to-city collaboration in the face of climate change, as well a comedy show about climate action.

When we look into the future, we see a time past the challenges of the Climate Crisis, a time in which circular economies, renewable energy, and sustainable systems are the norm. It is in this spirit that we bring you the Marketplace of the Future, an experiential immersion into what life will be like when all organizations are working for the betterment of people and planet.
The Marketplace of the Future is a cross between a celebration and market showcasing 40+ start-ups that operate with sustainable supply chains, give-back models, and social benefit at their core. There will be live jazz, zero-waste food and drinks, and of course, climate change camaraderie.
