Announcement of Momentum for Change's 2014 Lighthouse Activity winners
Announcing 12 Inspiring Climate Action Initiatives
Momentum for Change is pleased to announce the 2014 Lighthouse ActivitiesFrom new climate finance in Latin America to climate friendly homes in Africa to automated flood detection systems in the Indian Himalayan foothills, these 12 initiatives are all shining examples of climate solutions. 

"These activities are assisting communities, cities, businesses, governments and institutions to move towards a low-carbon, highly resilient future," UNFCCC Executive Secretary Christiana Figueres said. "The 2014 Lighthouse Activities show that action on climate change is not only possible but that it is already happening-injecting confidence into the global movement towards a universal climate change agreement in Paris in 2015."

The 2014 Lighthouse Activities were selected by a 25-member international advisory panel. Momentum for Change is implemented with the support of the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation and The Rockefeller Foundation, and operates in partnership with the World Economic Forum and the Global e-Sustainability Initiative

 

The winners will be honoured next month at the UN climate conference in Lima. If you are coming to the conference, join us for our showcase event on December 10 at 18:30 in the Chavin room.
