Cities are causing climate change. They consume the most resources, emit pollution, and produce tons of waste. At the same time, cities are also severely threatened by the climate crisis. As innovation hubs, rich in influence and intellectual and creative potential, cities are key players in the fight against climate change.
“Cities are where the climate battle will largely be won or lost.” -Antonio Guterres, UN Secretary General
