Answer for C40 Summit

Answered By: 
The Mayor

My Environment and Energy Advisor attended the C40 Board Meeting in Istanbul on 13 June. The Board elected its officers, including Matthew Pencharz as the Board Secretary. The Board also discussed C40's City Diplomacy Strategy, new and amended C40 networks and potential new grants.

My Environment and Energy Advisor also met with the Mayor of Istanbul where, in addition to discussing C40, he sought to further our two cities' relationship.
