Building Blocks

Story

"Cities100 is a mission shared by Sustainia, C40, and Realdania to find the 100 leading city solutions to climate change. To identify groundbreaking projects from around the world, C40 and Sustainia launched a public campaign for applications, which yielded 160 eligible project submissions. In order to find the projects with the largest potential to create low-carbon and resilient cities, the applications were vetted and assessed by city and climate change experts at C40 and Sustainia, who used a detailed scoring system based on five criteria:
- Climate action
- Co-benefits
- Innovation
- Governance
- Sharing and scaling"
