The Global Leaders Network in NYC welcomed the Monash Sustainable Development Institute, led by its Chair, John Thwaites, to New York for Climate Week. The MSDI and Monash students made a number of presentations throughout the week.

Guests heard from the inimitable Mina Guli, who’s done outstanding work raising awareness of the global water crisis (and who at one point throughout her esteemed career ran 40 marathons in 40 days!). We were also fortunate to gain intimate insights from Howard Bamsey, Chair of the Global Water Partnership, into some of the more robust discussions and controversial speeches delivered throughout Climate Week. Many thanks to National Australia Bank and Tom DeMaio for their hospitality in hosting Monash University for a fourth year.
