Climate Summit for Mayors

December 14, 2009 - December 17, 2009 Copenhagen, Denmark

At the UN Climate Change Conference in December 2009, national governments will be negotiating a new global climate agreement. At the same time, cities will present solutions needed to combat climate change at the Copenhagen Climate Summit for Mayors, hosted by the city of Copenhagen in cooperation with the C40 and ICLEI.

The Copenhagen Climate Summit for Mayors will put cities on top of the global climate agenda and send the message to the heads of state, the media and citizens that

Cities act - we must, we can and we will.

Cities are in a unique position to curb carbon emissions and for this reason governments should recognise the role of cities and involve them in the global climate cooperation.
