The Mayors Announce Their Support For Climate Change Strike

The Mayors of Paris, New York, Los Angeles and Copenhagen on Friday announced their support for the global climate strike

The Mayors of Paris, New York, Los Angeles and Copenhagen on Friday announced their support for the global climate strike.

“Today, September 20th, these inspiring young leaders have called for adults to join them for a global climate strike. We have an opportunity to show, not only that we hear their message, but that they have inspired us to act even faster,” they said in a joint statement.

“As mayors, our greatest responsibility is to protect the lives and wellbeing of those that live in our cities. As adults, our obligation is to leave the world in a better state for our children than we inherited it,” they said.

“That is why we are supporting the global climate strike. Mayors around the world, working through C40 Cities, are committed to deliver on the Paris Agreement and taking action to peak their emissions as our cities already have and bring them down sharply by 2030.

“Many businesses, investors, labour groups, faith leaders and local communities share our urgency…Young people are telling us that the climate emergency demands an emergency response. We couldn’t agree more,” the Mayors added.
