The Earth Hour City Challenge initiative has been created to celebrate cities that are taking amazing steps forward in creating a greener, cleaner and more sustainable city to live in, while inspiring other cities to do the same.
The plans and relevant data from the cities are submitted via an internationally recognized carbon reporting platform for cities, carbonn Cities Climate Registry, managed by ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability. Outreach and support to cities will be provided in collaboration with ICLEI and the final plans and data reviewed by an international jury.
The jury will review development plans for building, transport, energy and food systems – solutions that will make a city greener and cleaner and improve living standards for residents.
A number of impressive initiatives were highlighted in profiles of country finalists in a People’s Choice campaign where people around the world were invited to vote for their favorite among these cities.
