C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group
Aug 11, 2023
One of the things that keeps me optimistic is that many of the foremost climate leaders influencing political discourse at the local, national, and international levels are under the age of 29. That is why C40 Cities is supporting cities to work with youth on effective climate action that benefits all of us, and why, this London Climate Action Week, I am delighted to announce two new initiatives that empower cities and youth advocates to work with one another towards their shared aims on climate.
At a time when the UN Secretary-General, António Guterres, described national government responses to the threat of climate catastrophe as “pitiful,” young people are – across the world – showing the clarity of vision and consistency of purpose that the crisis demands.
