Next Generation City Action

100 young professionals from Mexico, Colombia, South Africa, Kenya, Ethiopia, South Korea and Denmark shared their bold solutions, current research and innovation accelerating the two thematic areas for this year’s program next generation buildings and carbon free streets at the C40 World Mayors Summit in Copenhagen, Denmark, on October 9-11 in Copenhagen. By providing the next generation a voice and combining partnerships, innovation and co-creation the objective was to ensure youth perspectives, skills and talents to enrich the C40 Summit.

The experience and learnings have paved the way for a new generation of climate ambassadors to continue to accelerate urban climate solutions in their home countries.

The initiative is lead by DTU Skylab, the hub for technology-based innovation and entrepreneurship at the Technical University of Denmark with support from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Denmark, and close collaboration with C40, P4G, Municipality of Copenhagen and other partners.
