People Magazine’s “Sexiest Man Alive”, Hugh Jackman, will be hitting the podium to help launch NYC Climate Week this coming Monday, September 21st. The actor will join World Vision Australia chief Tim Costello and speak at a climate change forum in New York alongside world leaders including UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and former British Prime Minister Tony Blair.

“I hope to be a voice for the billion people in developing countries who will be the hardest hit by changing weather patterns, by the droughts and floods that destroy their crops and threaten their food security,” Jackman said in a statement. “Climate Week NYC provides an ideal forum to help underscore the urgency for world leaders to secure and fund an ambitious global climate change deal in Copenhagen that is effective, fair and binding.”

NYC Climate Week offers a platform for government and business leaders, as well as members of the public, to demonstrate their support for action at the UN Climate Change Conference in Denmark. For more information, hit the official site here.
