Sixteen game-changing initiatives from around the world will be honoured as winners of a prestigious United Nations climate change award at a special ceremony this evening.
To help celebrate and recognize the achievements of the 2015 Lighthouse Activities, attendees at the gala event will be treated to inspirational videos and a lively musical performance by Sean Paul. Conservation International will screen the newest video in its critically acclaimed Nature is Speaking series, titled Home.
The Momentum for Change initiative is spearheaded by the UN Climate Change secretariat to shine a light on some of the most innovative, scalable and replicable examples of what people are doing to address climate change. This year’s winning activities range from a smartphone that puts social values first to an initiative that is enabling 40 Latin American cities to take concrete climate action.
