Following the inaugural C40 & Siemens City Climate Leadership Awards, which last week recognized 10 winning cities for their leadership in urban sustainability, C40 & Siemens are now kicking off the Citizen’s Choice Awards. This digital and media campaign puts 19 global cities in the spotlight for a range of projects spanning urban transportation, waste management, climate change planning and more, which helped them achieve finalist status in the lead-up to last week’s Awards event.
