Mayors, entrepreneurs, innovators, students, scientists, dreamers and doers, there are many roles to play in shaping the world of tomorrow. The question that C40s Women4Climate initiative tackles is how do you empower individuals to think and act in a fundamentally different way? Through a global mentorship program dedicated to women in C40 cities; they aim influence the conversation through leadership events and create new momentum and interest among future leaders.

“Women make up more than half the world’s population, and although they are often disproportionately impacted by climate change, their voices are not always heard due to lack of inclusion and representation at the decision-making level. Now more than ever, enhancing women’s participation and leadership in the conversation around climate action will be critical to securing a healthy, prosperous and sustainable future for us all” (Women4Climate).

How do you empower the next generation of women to lead climate action and justice globally? Watch this session to find out!
