The 2018 Global Climate Action Summit will bring leaders from all sectors across the globe to San Francisco to showcase climate action and inspire deeper commitments from national governments, and one another, in support of the Paris Agreement.

The Summit will spur climate action in five key areas: healthy energy systems, inclusive economic growth, sustainable communities, land and ocean stewardship and transformative climate investments.

U.S. Climate Alliance Governors will be holding a press conference Thursday, September 13 at 1pm PST. Live stream it here: https://livestream.com/nexusmedia/usclimatealliance
