Women4Climate Vancouver 2021

The climate crisis is upon us. We need bold leadership throughout society to avoid catastrophic climate change. Vancouver has a plan to cut our emissions in half by 2030. Recognizing we can’t get there alone, we’re pleased to support emerging climate leaders through the Women4Climate Mentorship Program
Mayor Kennedy Stewart, City of Vancouver

C40 will contribute to the emergence of the next generation of climate leaders by sharing knowledge and experience through a mentorship program dedicated to women working on climate issues to create a healthier, more sustainable and resilient urban future in C40 cities.

The C40 Women4Climate Mentorship Program matches forward looking mentors from politics, business sector, international organizations, and civil society with mentees. The mentors share their knowledge and experiences supporting the mentees to become powerful leaders in their chosen field, including politics, NGOs, business, media, and community groups.

Vancouver was the eighth city to launch a Women4Climate Mentorship Program. In its third year, Vancouver engaged mentees from a diverse range of sectors and backgrounds focused on climate change mitigation. The Vancouver mentees' work supported Vancouver’s Climate Emergency Action Plan  – specifically targets focuses on advancing low carbon buildings, active transportation and transit, zero emission vehicles, and natural carbon sequestration).
