Cities are increasingly cooperating with each other at the international scale to advance energy leadership, including by shifting to renewables and more energy efficient transportation. How does this connect to the best interests of the community and the drive to make cities more livable for residents? What is the value in cities learning from each other and what impact can they have by working together or internationally? Vancouver Mayor Gregor Robertson and Former Mayor of Rio de Janeiro and Chair of C40 Eduardo Paes, both known for advancing local climate and energy action and playing leadership roles internationally, will engage in a dialogue to connect community interest with energy leadership and an international agenda.
