Join us for this event just days ahead of the start of the COP26 summit at which US Special Presidential Envoy for Climate John Kerry will deliver remarks before taking audience questions. 

Meet our speaker and chair

On January 20, 2021, John F Kerry (@JohnKerry) was sworn in as the first Special Presidential Envoy for Climate (@ClimateEnvoy) and the first-ever Principal to sit on the National Security Council entirely dedicated to climate change. In recent years, Kerry was the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace’s first ever Visiting Distinguished Statesman, following his four years as the 68th United States Secretary of State. From 1985 to 2013, he served as a US Senator representing Massachusetts, and was Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee from 2009 to 2013. 

Nicholas Stern (@lordstern1) is the IG Patel Professor of Economics and Government, Chairman of the Grantham Research Institute on Climate Change and the Environment and Head of the India Observatory at the London School of Economics and Political Science. He was knighted for services to economics in 2004, made a cross-bench life peer as Baron Stern of Brentford in 2007, and appointed Companion of Honour for services to economics, international relations and tackling climate change in 2017.
