Live Earth Cities
Live Earth Cities is a project we're undertaking with our partner ICLEI - Local Governments for Sustainability.
How can your city participate in Live Earth?
1. Pass a "Live Earth Day" resolution: download a sample resolution here, and let us know that it's been passed.
2. Host a "Friends of Live Earth" event in your city.
3. Implement some of the carbon reduction strategies and plans available at the "Live Earth Cities" page on the coolmayors.org site.
4. Click on the logo above to download and use on your municipal website to let the rest of the world know that your community is doing its part to combat the climate crisis.
What's the Cool Mayors program?
A Cool Mayor is about climate and leadership. A Cool Mayor is about a can-do attitude and a solutions-oriented approach. A Cool Mayor is prepared to take on a difficult issue piece by piece and bring the community along. A Cool Mayor acts Ã¢â‚¬â€œ to promote energy efficiency, pioneer renewable energy, recycle waste, plant trees, plan smart growth, reduce traffic congestion Ã¢â‚¬â€œ whatever it takes to bring about climate protection, piece by piece, solution by solution.Cool Mayors run small cities and large cities. They are working around the world and they cross political boundaries to get the job done. Mayors from the Live Earth cities are some of the many mayors from around the world who are already leading the charge and implementing solutions at the local level.
