Cities and climate
12 November 2023
CLGF is partnering with the City Diplomacy Lab and Columbia Global Centers, Paris on a series of webinars on cities and climate solutions. These events are taking place over three dates and registration is now open if members wish to attend.
In the face of the climate crisis, cities across the world are emerging as integral problem-solvers in the development of an effective, multi-layered response. This series, launched in Spring 2023 with events on food and water, aims to bring together the representatives of cities that have implemented some of the most impactful and sustainable actions.
Events will take place as webinars, having begun in October, and will cover the topics of air, energy, and waste. Each webinar will see the participation of representatives of three cities and will be moderated by a representative from Columbia University. In order to ensure geographic representativeness, each webinar will host city representatives from different regions and countries.
This series celebrates the leadership of cities and provides inspiration for the thousands of cities and local governments around the world committed to shaping the global response to climate change.
