On International Women’s Day, the C40 Women4Climate initiative has launched an inspiring new video celebrating the 600 women from 16 cities who have participated in the mentorship programme since its founding in 2017. The video features mayors, mentors and mentees from the participating cities including Addis Ababa, Auckland, Barcelona, Freetown, Lima, Lisbon, London, Mexico City, Montreal, New Orleans, Paris, Quito, Sydney, Tel Aviv-Yafo, Toronto and Vancouver.
We know that our societies are stronger when women are at the decision-making table, in office and on the streets, leading the charge for transformational change.
The C40 Women4Climate Mentorship Programme supports cities in engaging with resident women to accelerate women-led, local climate projects and solutions that contribute to the city climate priorities and action plans. By emphasizing the inextricable link between climate change and the achievement of gender justice and equality, the Women4Climate initiative aims to help cities deliver ambitious and inclusive climate action.
