As part of Climate Emergency Leadership Day, organizations dedicated to tackling the climate emergency commit their support to our daring cities, announcing the dedicated actions and steps they are taking right now to help further enable and accelerate urgent and ambitious climate action in cities, towns, and regions around the world.
