In celebration of Climate Week, C40 cities will be running a digital billboard in Times Square, New York City's most significant commercial zone. From September 22nd to the 23rd, a C40 video will run for 6 minutes per hour, every hour.
Next week, C40 and Siemens will announce the finalists for the second annual C40 & Siemens City Climate Leadership Awards. But before that happens, we wanted to take a moment to reflect on some of the projects that won last year for demonstrating climate leadership in areas as diverse as urban transportation and adaptation and resilience.
The In Focus city reports provide valuable insight into the efforts of the world's leading cities to become more sustainable. This report has been developed with C40's official reporting partner, CDP Cities, and AECOM, using data submitted through CDP's reporting platform. It conveys information about how New York City perceives its climate risk, measures key climate change-related data, and manages climate action.
In the lead-up to next week’s C40 Mayors Summit, where Climate Adaptation and Resilience will be key themes, we hear from C40’s very own Mandy Ikert about an exciting new collaboration to help cities prepare for the shocks and stresses of climate change.
