  • We all need to look after the one we’ve got; and second, we also know that the new climate economy – if done right through people-centered climate action – can deliver higher income and living standards, more and better jobs, significant public health benefits, greater social equity, and a healthier natural environment.
  • In fact, recent research from the Coalition for Urban Transitions finds that ambitious climate action in cities could support 87 million jobs in 2030.
