Paris Mentorship 2019
For the 3rd edition of the mentorship programme in Paris C40 has selected 20 candidates from Paris and the Parisian region, who are working on a project that contributes to: the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions; zero waste strategies; urban farming and sustainable food systems; and the improvement of air quality in urban areas.
The Women4Climate Mentorship Programme matches city officials; committed leaders from the business sector; international organizations; and civil society with emerging women leaders. Each woman selected for the scheme receives training that highlights skills development; addresses barriers; and inspires deeper engagement with climate change.
The new Paris mentorship cohort has been launched in September 2019, read more about the mentees' projects and their backgrounds below.

“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. Brilliant young women from cities around the world determined to deliver on the ambition of the Paris Agreement have joined us at Paris city hall for the 3rd Women4Climate conference in Paris. There is no doubt that women are taking the lead in delivering the future we want and the future we trust.”
