Youth Dialogue on Cities & Local Action

Currently, about 54% of the world’s population lives in cities, and by 2050 the urban population is expected to grow by 2.5 billion people.
70% of cities are already dealing with the effects of climate change, and nearly all are at risk. Over 90% of all urban areas are coastal, putting most cities on Earth at risk of flooding from rising sea levels and powerful storms.

Climate change could raise urban temperatures to levels that threaten human health, strain energy resources, and compromise economic productivity. More heat can increase ozone air pollution.

It’s time to talk about how we can take action for our climate.

Join the #GirlsforClimateAction. to learn for about how we propose to take action!
