The Polish President is one of 40 world leaders invited to take part in the virtual summit dedicated to the climate crisis. On Friday, President Duda spoke to Slovenia's Borut Pahor and Lithuania's Gitanas Nausėda, mostly focusing on the struggle with COVID-19, as well as security issues in connection to the situation in Ukraine. Further talks are planned early in the week.

The Three Seas Initiative is a Polish-led regional drive by European countries between the Black, Baltic and Adriatic Seas.

The start of the the Leaders Summit on Climate coincides with Earth Day, April 22. Heads of state representing some of the world's biggest economies, including China's Xi Jinping and Russia’s Vladimir Putin, have received the invitation to attend the two-day meeting.

The White House said in a statement that the major idea behind the meeting is "to galvanize efforts by the major economies to tackle the climate crisis." The event will be digital-only due to the coronavirus pandemic.

Polish News Agency PAP has quoted Presidential chief of staff Krzysztof Szczerski, saying the Polish head of state has been asked to give a speech at the event on the topic of combining climate policies with job creation.

The President's Chancellery said President Duda is to present Polish ideas and experiences regarding a just economic transformation, and in creating new jobs in innovative industries within a green economy. He is also to speak on issues of energy security and showcase the concepts being implemented in other countries of the region. The Chancellery said: "In this sense, the speech at the summit will have the nature of a more extensive regional message."
