When it comes to solving the climate crisis, cities have an unprecedented opportunity. We already have the tools to cut greenhouse gas emissions from cities by close to 90 percent in the next thirty years. We just need to empower leaders and residents to adopt them.
In light of COVID-19, what might a “green” recovery look like? What might very different cities have to teach each other?
Welcome to the Daring Cities podcast, where we talk to urban leaders around the world who are taking radical climate action to prepare for, adapt to and tackle the climate emergency.
Join host Julia Scott for stories from seven daring cities in places as diverse as the Philippines, Finland, Japan, Sweden, Argentina and the USA.
