A few months back, Climate Heroes Founder and Photographer Maxime Riché was in NYC to give a speech at the UNFCCC reception at the Hearst tower, during the UNFCCC Climate Summit, at the same time as the NYC Climate March (more information on the original article here).
We are now delighted to share the final edited video of the evening, slightly shortened to keep a decent size. This sorter version features the speeches of R.K. Pachauri, who has been serving as thechairperson of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) since 2002, which was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, as well as Wael Hmaidan, Director of the Climate Action Network, and Max Riché.
The reception was hosted by UK Climate Change Minister (now Envoy on Climate Change) Greg Barker and Robert De Niro’s wife, Grace Hightower De Niro, at the Hearst Tower, a LEED Platinum-certified building at the corner of Central Park. Many Climate Negociators, artists, activists and journalists were present.
