On March 15, women mayors from many the world’s greatest cities and women business leaders committed to use their growing global power to tackle climate change and deliver on the ambition of the Paris Agreement. Meeting at the inaugural Women4Climate conference in New York City, the mayors of Paris, Mexico City, Durban, Cape Town and Caracas, pledged to support and mobilise the next generation of women leaders, fighting climate change.

Hosted by C40 Chair and Mayor of Paris, Anne Hidalgo at Columbia University, the first-of-its-kind event brought together women mayors from many of the world’s largest and most influential cities. These powerful women leaders were joined by CEO’s and innovative change-makers who represent the next generation of women leaders acting to reduce carbon emissions and protect the world from the impacts of climate change.

The event officially launched the C40 Women4Climate initiative. A major new effort by the C40 Cities network that will contribute to the emergence of the next generation of climate leaders. Learn more about the mentorship programme here
