Advisory Panel Selects 2016 Lighthouse Activities
Our Advisory Panel met earlier this month to select what promises to be another amazing group of Lighthouse Activities. We are excited to announce the winning initiatives in September and celebrate them during a series of special events in November at the UN Climate Change Conference in Marrakech, Morocco.

We would like to thank everyone who took the time to nominate their game-changing projects. Your efforts to create a low-carbon, highly resilient future is building ambition to implement the Paris Climate Change Agreement.
