Earth Hour City Challenge for 2015 climate treaty



Posted on 24 June 2013  | 
WWF is inviting cities from 15 countries to participate in the 2014 Earth Hour City Challenge (EHCC) and provide example and inspiration in support of the international negotiations to finalize a fair and effective new global climate agreement for 2015.
As urban dwellers account for over 70 per cent of global CO2 emissions causing climate change, cities can play a major role to reduce carbon emissions through smart planning of new buildings, energy and transport. The EHCC aims to recognize substantial efforts to address the causes of climate change, and to mobilize action from cities in the necessary global transition towards 100 per cent renewable energy.
