Project Description

We co-organised and participated in the C40 World Mayors Summit! It took place between the 9th-12th of October 2019 in Copenhagen. This unique event gathers mayors from cities across the world to discuss, exchange knowledge and present how cities manage to tackle climate change adaptations and implement sustainable development of urban areas.

The purpose is also to congratulate the great engagement of mayors, companies and citizens who spend an impressive amount of energy and innovative spirit to create concrete, successful projects.

In the days before the summit, Young Influencers from all over the world, departed on a Climate Action Explorer Tour taking them across Denmark to explore Danish industry and municipal initiative in Aarhus and Copenhagen. They were given a voice to bring forward insights and visions from their work into the summit with a focus on “The Future We Want”.

Anna Lia S. Tromer Dragsdahl and Joao Møller organised and coordinated the Young Influencers’ track in cooperation with DTU Skylab, while Mi Taagard, Louis Ortega, Jorge Montalvo Arvizu, Joao Zagalo, Josefine Sund, Yoshiko Suzuki and Camilla Gil gave a crucial helping hand during the C40 week.
