The New York Times Climate Hub at SWG3 has begun.
The 9-day event kicked off today with panel discussions, workshop sessions, food, drink, ideas and debate, all led by the journalistic powerhouse and delivered with integrity and style.
Amongst a host of special guests, speakers and surprise attendees, Channel 4's Krishnan Guru Murthy moderated the day's central debate (Migration Is A Sound Adaptation and Reparations Strategy), whilst former US vice president Al Gore was the guest speaker alongside Janet Ranganathan at a Think Tank session on data.
The events took place across the full complex, including in The Think Tank - a completely transformed Galvanizers space, currently home to 197 species of trees and plants, courtesy of artist Es Devlin (find out more).
