Momentum for Change: Lighthouse Activities

Momentum for Change provides a public platform to highlight broad-ranging climate change actions that are already achieving real results on the ground. By shining light on the most inspiring and transformational mitigation and adaptation activities, known as 'Lighthouse Activities', Momentum for Change aims to strengthen motivation, spur innovation and catalyse further change towards a low-emission, high-resilient future. The Lighthouse Activities are showcased at the annual United Nations climate change conferences.
