DescriptionUrban areas have been ravaged by the pandemic and face many of the worst climate impacts - yet they are also a source of resilience and innovation to tackle these urgent challenges. How are the world's cities building climate action into their present and future, and what is the role of women mayors and leaders in shaping inclusive, sustainable cities and economies? Join us to discuss these questions with Yvonne Aki-Sawyerr OBE, Mayor of Freetown, Sierra Leone and vice-chair of the C40 Cities Steering Committee, which leads cities around the world to deliver a green and just recovery and future.
