Mayor Walsh joins leaders from partner cities to discuss climate action and commit to share solutions.
Earlier this week, Mayor Walsh announced that Boston would host an international climate summit in 2018 for cities to exchange climate action solutions. He continued the local and international collaboration yesterday by meeting with city leaders from Cambridge and Copenhagen to discuss climate challenges, and strategies for meeting shared climate goals.
Yesterday’s meeting produced an agreement between the cities of Boston, Copenhagen, and Cambridge to develop and share best practices as we move towards our respective goals. Copenhagen’s Mayor of Technical and Environmental Affairs, Morten Kabell, emphasized the importance of international collaboration in his remarks:
“Cities have a great task ahead of them. They need to be at the forefront of the green transition and they need to work together to create the innovative solutions in order to both dramatically reduce emissions and increase the resilience of the cities. We are really looking forward to collaborating with Boston and Cambridge on this.”
