On December 1st, Anne Hidalgo became the new Chair of the C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group. At the opening ceremony, she delivered an inspiring speech, focused on the absolute necessity for major cities to take action against climate change and for sustainability: "There are three things we need to do : act, act and act again" she said.
Part of the speech was dedicated to two major actions that she has taken as Mayor of Paris and that she intends to bring to major cities around the world: Reinvent Cities and DataCity.
"[...] we must reinvent our cities, that is, allow all our fellow citizens to create, in complete freedom, to make way for free architectural, cultural, economic, social and societal innovation. And we will do this by fostering in our own network the project to Reinvent cities, based on the successful Reinvent Paris. It is what we will do by also launching DataCity, an initiative backed by NUMA, the most important incubator in Paris, which will allow putting technological innovation at the service of sustainable cities."
Anne Hidalgo, Mayor of Paris
We are now more motivated than ever to carry on and to intensify our efforts to build the sustainable cities of tomorrow.
