This video podcast examines the city of London's role in C40, the international climate change organization. The majority of the world's population is now urban, making cities major sources of greenhouse gas emissions. In response, leaders from 40 cities met in London to tackle the challenge of making urban areas less polluting. The result is a worldwide network of cities - named C40 - that shares innovative strategies and advances climate change policy on the political agenda.
