Did you know that cities produce 75% of global greenhouse gas emissions?

Cities will be the central actors in future climate change mitigation and adaptation. We will need to use smart technologies and ICT to reinvent the way cities are built and operated. The Climate City Olympics encourages cities and regions around the world to compete to find the best solutions to these challenges.

THE IDEA

Let's reinvent the way cities are built and operated through competitive urban mitigation.

Sports competitions attract hundreds of millions of viewers worldwide. Why not adopt this idea in other areas, such as countering climate change and fostering sustainability?

The idea is to accelerate progress towards reaching the United Nations Sustainability Goals, as laid out in Agenda 2030 and the Paris Climate Accords.
