WHY WE LOVE CITIES

With over 3.5 billion people living in them, cities have a big climate footprint. But they’ve got an even bigger opportunity to create better places to live and a healthier planet in the process. Through better transport, green buildings, harnessing the power of nature, wasting less and loving more, cities can lead the way to a climate-friendly future.
