The Mayor of London, Sadiq Khan, has declared a climate emergency. As part of London’s response to this, the first ever London Climate Action Week was held from 1-8 July 2019.
The week brought together London’s climate expertise and talent from across sectors to run events across the city focused on taking local, national and international action. These events highlighted the scaling up of practical solutions and identifying new solutions to help cut our carbon emissions to keep global temperature increases within 1.5C and support the Paris Agreement.
The Mayor worked with E3G and other partners to convene events by Londoners, businesses, civil society groups and local, national and international governments.
