Add to Calendar

Cities currently account for 70% of global greenhouse gases and energy consumption. In order to achieve a carbon neutral society, cities must accelerate the transition to a decarbonised society that is suited to the characteristics of each city, and through learning and collaboration among cities, it is possible to quickly derive solutions that are appropriate for each city. The Ministry of the Environment, Japan (MOEJ) has been supporting such efforts since 2013 through the "City-to-City Collaboration for Zero Carbon Society (C3P)".
On the occasion of the 10th anniversary of the C3P, cities participating in C3P the project shared the significance of the decarbonization transition in light of recent international trends and concrete measures in this seminar, and aimed to build momentum for the expansion and horizontal deployment of integrated climate action at the city level.

*This seminar is an event of the "Climate Change and Zero Carbon City Week".
