Hosted by Mayor Don Iveson and the Global Covenant of Mayors, the day and a half long day summit was a key opportunity for mayors from around the world to discuss the critical next steps for creating integrated city climate strategies. Mayors exchanged ideas, identified knowledge and policy gaps, and came together around the courageous leadership needed to address climate change.
Saturday March 3, 2018 from 5-9pm
Sunday March 4, 2018 from 8:30am-5pm
The summit was held just prior to the IPCC Cities and Climate Change Science Conference which took place in Edmonton March 5-7, 2018. This first-of-its-kind conference aimed to inspire the next frontier of research focused on the science of cities and climate change.
I have long believed in the power of cities to tackle some of the great challenges of our time. This is especially true when it comes to confronting both the causes and impacts of climate change. We hope you decide to join us for this important meeting in Edmonton.
