Transforming our cities for a One Planet Future

In recent years we’ve gone from a small world on a big planet to a big world on a small planet. We now have a very small window of opportunity to transform our economy to enable all Earthlings to meet our needs within the capacity of this one and only planet. A great challenge and opportunity lies in the rapid growth of the world’s cities. Urban development decisions taken today will determine whether we will win or lose our battle for a sustainable future. Luckily there is growing leadership and momentum for bold climate action in cities across the planet. Examples from WWF’s One Planet City initiative demonstrate how city leaders, communities, businesses, finance actors and entrepreneurs can take action together to lead the global transition towards a One Planet Future.
