WUC CALL TO CLIMATE ACTION
Recognizing that Climate Change is one of the planet’s greatest challenges, the World Urban campaign is calling to climate action to vigorously address the destruction of ecosystems and the threat to undo decades of development gains. Without transformational action, climate emergencies will become increasingly severe, have declared the 160 partner organizations of the World Urban Campaign (WUC). Reiterating the disastrous effects of climate disasters that impact nearly 200 million people every year, particularly severe on the urban poor, the WUC calls for urgent climate action and invite organizations to join their plea in recognizing the global climate emergency and proposing key actions and principles to deliver The City We Need.
SHARE YOUR CLIMATE ACTION SOLUTIONS
On 15 April 2021, UN-Habitat launched the #ClimateAction4Cities Campaign, a dedicated action campaign to engage more broadly, mobilize multiple actors, and promote climate solutions in cities and communities. Climate action solutions will be promoted on social media channels, shared in various platforms, and inform discussions with researchers and policy-makers at the Innovate4Cities Conference (co-hosted by UN-Habitat on 11-15 October 2021).
NOMINATE YOUR CITY CHANGERS
In 2021, the World Urban Campaign will recognize ‘City Changers’ individuals for their outstanding contribution to address the challenges of climate change in order to achieve “The City We Need”. As ‘City Changers’, individuals will be promoted on the WUC Website and the WUC social media channels. They will participate in WUC Events (Urban Thinkers Campus, City Changers Cafés, etc.)
PLEASE NOMINATE YOUR INDIVIDUAL “CITY CHANGERS” BEFORE 30 APRIL
