“I’m delighted that Paris, for the third year running, will welcome another 20 inspiring young women leaders into our Women4Climate mentorship scheme” said Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris and Chair of C40. “The climate strikes currently taking place on the streets of our cities are being led by teenage girls. At Paris City Hall on February 21st, 2019 we've heard from brilliant young women from cities around the world determined to deliver on the ambition of the Paris Agreement. There is no doubt that the Women are taking the Lead in delivering the future we want and the future we trust.”
This is the launch of the third edition of the Paris Mentorship Programme which aims to select 20 women from Paris and the Parisian region who will embark on a 10 month journey supported by their mentors and C40 to contribute to Paris's actions in the fight against climate change.
The programme is seeking mentees from a diverse range of sectors and backgrounds focused on climate change mitigation in their city. We encourage any woman with an innovative and concrete project or idea to apply.
