C40 Cities consists of nearly 100 mayors of the world’s leading cities, working together to deliver the urgent action needed to confront the climate crisis, and create a thriving future for all. Through a Global Green New Deal, mayors are working alongside a broad coalition of representatives from labour, business, the youth climate movement, and civil society to go further and faster than ever before.
C40 mayors have made the case for a green and just recovery from the COVID pandemic at #COP26. C40 is also demonstrating the highest level of climate action by jointly hosting an onsite and virtual exhibition, showcasing climate action success in global cities.
