In December, Austin’s Mayor Steve Adler and Brandi Clark Burton attended the C40 Mayors Summit 2016 in Mexico City. The event, convened by the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group, rallied 40 mayors from around the world and sustainability representatives of 90 cities to focus on the leadership needed by cities to hit the targets in the Paris Agreement. They also released the report Deadline 2020: How cities will get the job done which outlines the scale and scope of actions needed if we hope to avert more than a +1.5C global temperature rise. Come learn about the big picture, what Austin is doing, and what you can do to help ensure a climate safe future.

Mexico City hosted the sixth biennial C40 Mayors Summit, November 30  – December 2, 2016.  The Summit brought together C40 mayors from all over the world and hundreds of urban and sustainability leaders to advance urban solutions to climate change and highlight the leadership role of cities in addressing climate change.

The event featured a series of roundtable discussions and working sessions on city driven climate actions and their impact; the discussions were data-driven and outcome focused. Mayors, urban practitioners and technical experts shared successful projects, policies and programs across a range of sectors and action areas, including building energy efficiency, low carbon transport, green growth and climate resilience.   For more results of the conference go to:  http://www.c40.org/researches/deadline-2020
