Joint statement from global mayors & young climate leaders

Ahead of COP26, we, the C40 Global Youth & Mayors Forum, call on national governments to take radical action within the next year to address the climate crisis, in line with at least halving global emissions by 2030.

1. We call on you to put the Global Green New Deal into action, put people before profits or partisan politics, and deliver a Green and Just Transition.

2. We call on you to divest from the fossil fuel industry and invest in climate solutions.

3. We call on you to finance far beyond $100 billion per year to the Global South.

4. We call on you to work on international and intergenerational collaboration.

C40 is a leading global network of cities taking bold and ambitious climate action to deliver a healthy, equitable and sustainable future for all.
