We Want to Shine a Light on Your Climate Solution
We're almost one month into the call for applications for the 2017 Momentum for Change Lighthouse Activities. If you haven't done so already, be sure to submit your climate action project. We want to hear from you !

The winning activities will be recognized and celebrated during a series of special events in November at the UN Climate Change Conference in Bonn, Germany (COP 23).

"By showcasing these remarkable solutions and the people behind them, we can inspire policy and investment action towards a low-emission, highly resilient future and increased ambition to implement the Paris Climate Change Agreement," said UNFCCC Executive Secretary Patricia Espinosa. "Not only do these activities address climate change, but they also help drive forward progress on many other Sustainable Development Goals, such as innovation, gender equality and economic opportunity. Together, we are creating a better future for generations to come."

Don't miss out! Applications are being accepted until 23:59 GMT on 9 April 2017. To learn more and apply, visit our application site . Not sure how to get started? Watch our screencast to take a 7-minute tour of the application process with step-by-step instructions.
