About this item

Cities across the globe are growing fast and many simply unsustainable, with polluted air, excessive energy consumption, and an absence of nature. But big cities don’t have to mean a dystopian future. They can be turned around to be powerhouses of well-being and environmental sustainability—if we empower women.

C40 Cities Group, a global network of the largest and greenest cities across the planet, is leading the way by delivering practical environmental changes right now. The mayors and city leaders of C40 are committed to make cities good for people and the planet. To help realize this, they have launched Women4Climate, an initiative to promote and support women as climate leaders.

This book is a unique collaboration between C40 and Friends of the Earth showcasing pioneering city mayors, key voices in the environmental and feminist movements, and academics. The articles and interviews collectively demonstrate both the need for women’s empowerment for climate action and the
powerful change it can bring. They are a rallying call for the planet, for women, and for everyone.
