Sustainable Development Impact Summit - World Economic Forum at Convene Day 2

You can see the full gallery of images that I produced for the World Economic Forum - HERE.

Delivering on the ambitions of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris climate agreement will require accelerating public-private cooperation and deploying new technological solutions. The Sustainable Development Impact Summit aims to advance both by providing a multistakeholder platform for concerted action. 

The World Economic Forum will work closely with leaders from government, business, academia and civil society who will be present in New York during the United Nations General Assembly to:

• Increase the impact of existing multistakeholder initiatives
• Catalyse new partnerships and alliances
• Explore how the advanced technologies of the Fourth Industrial Revolution could be better leveraged for sustainable development.

Hudson River Recreation Kayak Tour on the Hudson River

Pay my friends at Hudson River Recreation a visit before the weather drops too much this Autumn. It was super fun paddling out in a double kayak with my old friend John Clark to photograph this sunset tour of the Hudson River. Come explore New York's historic Hudson River with Hudson River Recreation. They are the premier sea kayak company in Westchester County with programs in Sleepy Hollow, Croton, Tarrytown, and many other local bodies of water.
