Around the world, mayors and local leaders are taking steps to tackle climate change whilst addressing issues of poverty and social inequality. Through a series of short films and an accompanying print publication – all made possible with generous support from the Citi Foundation – C40 is excited to feature six mayors who are delivering inclusive climate action in their cities.  

Watch the mayors of Bogotá, Cape Town, New York City, Paris, Portland and Seoul explain why climate change and social inequality must be tackled together in the exclusive short film ‘We Live Here Together’:
