The Mayor of Bilbao will participate in the meeting of the World Council of United Cities and Local Governments in the Climate Summit in Paris

The Mayor of Bilbao will participate in Paris at the meeting of the World Council of United Cities and Local Governments (UCLG), the largest organization of local and regional governments internationally, and which Bilbao is a member of since 2013.

The World Council meeting is held in conjunction with the Climate Summit for local leaders. A Summit in which local leaders will agree joint actions that contribute to the International Conference on Climate Change – COP21, also held during these days in Paris.

The World Council, which will bring together more than 500 local representatives around the world on this occasion, will serve as a forum to discuss some of the most important global issues in the political agenda of local governments internationally. The Summit has served to strengthen the role of sub-national governments to set more ambitious objectives to fight against climate change.
