Answered By: 
The Mayor

The next C40 meeting that my Senior Advisor on Environment and Energy will be attending is the C40 Cities Mayor's Summit in Johannesburg from 4 to 6 February 2014. He will be attending in his capacities as a C40 Board member and mayoral advisor as well as representing me as I am unable to attend.

The theme of the Summit is; "Towards Resilient & Liveable Megacities: Demonstrating Action, Impact and Opportunity" The Summit themes draw directly on both the expressed priorities of C40 Cities, as well the three pillars of Johannesburg Mayor Tau's "Productive City Strategy": Sustainability, Liveability, and Resilience.
