C40 World Mayors Summit 2019 in Copenhagen
The C40 World Mayors Summit is C40’s milestone event. It is serving as a unique forum for member cities to present the innovative actions they have taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and improve climate resilience. The event strives to influence decision makers – from fellow mayors to CEOs and national leaders – to take the bold and urgent action needed to keep global temperature rise to below 1.5 °C. And inspire participants and citizens to take climate action in their own lives!
Over the past decade, C40 has convened six World Mayors Summits, hosted by London (2005), New York (2007), Seoul (2009), Sao Paulo (2011), Johannesburg (2014) and Mexico City (2016). Each C40 World Mayors Summit has provided unique opportunities for the mayors of the world’s great cities to showcase their climate leadership on the global stage.
With its agenda setting program, and inspiring set of speakers, the C40 Mayors Summit is a unique global event. Previous C40 Summits have made headlines around the world by publishing groundbreaking research, showcasing cutting edge innovation from cities and launching new partnerships to promote creative urban solutions to climate change.
Copenhagen is a true pioneer in creating the sustainable, healthy and liveable cities of the future. The C40 World Mayors Summit in Copenhagen will be the first to truly bring the citizens of the city into the Summit with a Host City Festival.
More than 1,000 delegates from 94 mega cities around the world will gather in Copenhagen to discuss ways for cities to reach the goals of the Paris Agreement and limit CO2 emissions through green transition and climate adaptation.
