I am not attending the Earthshot Innovation Prize Summit in New York this month. The inaugural Earthshot Prize Award Ceremony was hosted in London last year, where I did attend, but my focus this autumn will be the C40 Cities World Mayors Summit in October.

As Chair of the C40 Cities, I will use this event to show our leadership, share innovation and emphasise the vital role of cities in tackling climate change. At the C40 Summit, Mayors from across the globe will promote the theme ‘United in Action’. We will emphasise how climate action can tackle the immediate cost-of-living crisis, and address economic, social and health inequalities.
