THIRD C40 LARGE CITIES SUMMIT ADDRESSES ACHIEVEMENTS AND CHALLENGES IN FIGHTING CLIMATE CHANGE

The third Summit of the C40, a group of the world's largest cities committed to tackling climate change, was held in Seoul, South Korea, from 18-21 May 2009. Under the theme “Cities' Achievements and Challenges in the Fight Against Climate Change,” the Summit brought together mayors, company executives and leaders from 40 cities and 17 affiliate municipalities around the world to share their policies and good practices in addressing global warming. The C40 Large Cities Climate Leadership Group was established in 2005 by London's then mayor Ken Livingstone, to take action on climate change. C40 previously met in London in 2005, and in New York in 2007.
