Empowering climate heroes to shape the future of the planet
Women leaders played a critical role in negotiating the Paris Agreement and continue to drive ambitious climate action in cities, businesses and NGOs around the world. Women make up more than half the world’s population, and are often disproportionately impacted by climate change. Their leadership and participation is therefore critical in solving this global crisis.
Through the Women4Climate initiative, C40 aims to:
Empower & Inspire the next generation of climate leaders through a global mentorship program dedicated to women in C40 cities.
Influence the conversation through leadership events and create a new vocation among future leaders.
Drive Action by launching an annual challenge dedicated to the best innovations in climate and sustainability.
Raise Awareness through research on gender, cities and climate to highlight the key role women play in championing climate policies.
