GPA was invited to be participate in the International City Climate Leadership conference and Awards dinner, held at the Crystal, London on 04-05 September, 2013. The event was sponsored by Siemens and the C40 Climate leadership Group and was attended by delegates from all parts of the world. Following a glittering reception and dinner, including a stunning laser show, ten organisations received awards at the following day’s conference.
Details of the event can be found here, where examples of innovative and practical approaches can be found. It is hoped that these can provide encouragement to mayors and other key stakeholders to adopt these and similar approaches in other cities worldwide so that urban centres can realise their full potential of achieving sustainable social, environmental and economic development.
