The Climate City provides cutting-edge approaches for developing resilient solutions to combat the effects of climate change in cities throughout the world.

  • Demonstrates why the global economy needs to transition to a low-carbon economy 
  • Describes the role of financial institutions and how they can allocate capital more efficiently 
  • Explains why and how challenges and priorities are different in the global north and south  
  • Illustrates how data can improve the ways cities use energy resources and operate transportation systems 
  • Discusses how citizen action can drive a new, more meaningful way of living in cities 
  • Features insights from political leaders such as the Mayor of Copenhagen, the Mayor of Los Angeles and the former Mayor of London and Prime Minister of the United Kingdom
