Race to Zero with ICLEI150 Leaders

Race To Zero is a global campaign of the United Nations’ COP26 Climate Champions to rally leadership and support from businesses, cities, regions, and investors for a healthy, resilient, zero-carbon recovery that prevents future threats, creates decent jobs, and unlocks inclusive, sustainable growth.

The “ICLEI150” represents a movement of 150 local governments across the ICLEI USA network that are stepping up to join the Cities Race to Zero to cut global emissions in half by 2030 and to zero by 2050.

Join this session to learn why local leaders are taking this bold step and what they feel is needed to succeed. Learn more: https://icleiusa.org/race-to-zero/
