Since 2015, Climate Chance has been involved in mobilising people in the fight against climate change. Climate Chance was created in the wake of the World Summit on Climate and Territories in Lyon, which brought together climate stakeholders in the run-up to COP21. It is the only international association proposing to bring together all of the non-state actors recognised by the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change – UNFCCC – on an equal footing. Their mission is to strengthen the climate action of local authorities, businesses and civil society by networking actors, in order to bring about common priorities and proposals, thereby contributing to meeting the objectives of the Paris Climate Agreement. Their association supports the central role of locally-led action, both in climate action and in achieving the Sustainable Development Goals.
