C40's message takes center stage in New York's Times Square during Climate Week 2014.

C40 Chair, Mayor of Rio de Janeiro, Eduardo Paes and all of C40 welcomed member cities and partners to Climate Week, which helped demonstrate the growing demand for — and promise of — a global agreement on climate action. The week's activities helped solidify the leadership role of cities: C40 released a series of new research findings and publications and participated in both the global Compact of Mayors and a special report from UN Secretary-General's Special Envoy for Cities and Climate Change and President of the C40 Board of Directors, Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg.
