C40 World Mayors Summit

C40 World Mayors Summit

The C40 World Mayors Summit in Copenhagen will build a global coalition of leading cities, businesses and citizens that rallies around the radical and ambitious climate action our planet needs.

The Summit will showcase examples of how cities are already delivering on their strong commitments and accelerate the bold climate solutions needed for a sustainable, healthier, resilient and inclusive future.  

Why Copenhagen?

As the host city, Copenhagen will make visible the wide range of successful climate solutions that the city has to offer and how its businesses and citizens are engaging in creating the experimental climate actions of tomorrow. The city will serve as an immersive living laboratory where delegates get to take a trip to the future and experience what it’s like to live in a city on the frontline of innovation.
