C40 World Mayors Summit in CPH

Tobias Uncategorized

Last week, the C40 Cities World Mayors Summit was held in Copenhagen and we were on board! 🌍

91 kg of trash was collected at the Live Like Tomorrow Climate Festival in Copenhagen by Mayors, Youth Climate Leaders, Activists, you and me, and people working on preserving the planet.

💚 Our goal was to let as many people as possible experience what GreenKayak is all about, getting volunteers on the water and letting them pick up trash while kayaking makes a difference, to them and the environment.

Meeting mayors and delegates from all over the world at an event like the C40 Cities Mayors Summit is a good reminder that some cities are facing bigger challenges than others in regards of environmental pollution. It makes us at GreenKayak even more conscious that our work is not the solution to the problem of ocean pollution – but it’s a working concept that engages citizens and raises awareness to the issue in a positive way.

The encouragement from leaders across the world is good motivation to advance our expansion plans for 2020!

Thank you to the dozens of volunteers who decided to act. 🙏🏼
