The C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group is a network of 97 cities around the world whose goal is to confront climate change. Since 2017, the C40 group has been holding an annual Women4Climate conference to focus on women empowerment within the climate field. Among the conference participants are female mayors of C40 cities who are committed to a sustainable future. Moreover, these mayors insist that women are on the forefront of finding climate solutions and should be recognized as such. This requires mentoring and supporting young women who are already addressing climate change and removing any barriers they may face in their work. Photo credit: Thomson Reuters Foundation
