In 2006, the world’s urban population surpassed its rural population for the first time. This global migration towards urban areas demands huge investments in sustainable energy, transportation and building infrastructure.

The Green Cities campaign will mobilize key constituencies globally to create new and widespread support for environmentally progressive policies, and generate concrete commitments for innovative and replicable initiatives. Join us in calling for a new era of green cities. LEARN MORE
