Earlier this year, millions of women marched in solidarity on every continent around the globe to protect basic human rights. But when it comes to local government, women haven’t just broken through the glass ceiling – they’ve smashed it: in just the last two years, the number of C40 member cities with women mayors has skyrocketed from 4 to 15.
The event will launch C40’s Women4Climate initiative, as powerful women mayors and CEO’s commit to support the young and innovative change-makers who will lead the future fight for a sustainable planet.
C40 Cities connects more than 90 of the world’s greatest cities, representing 650+ million people and one quarter of the global economy. Created and led by cities, C40 is focused on tackling climate change and driving urban action that reduces greenhouse gas emissions and climate risks, while increasing the health, wellbeing and economic opportunities of urban citizens. The current chair of the C40 is Mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo; and three-term Mayor of New York City Michael R. Bloomberg serves as President of the Board. C40’s work is made possible by our three strategic funders: Bloomberg Philanthropies, Children’s Investment Fund Foundation (CIFF), and Realdania.
