Cities Are Tackling Climate Change at the Local Level with These Bold Projects

As part of our efforts to promote professional development among city leaders, each week we’ll be featuring a new TED Talk focused on cities, community issues or local government.

In honor of Earth Day on April 22, this week’s featured talk focuses on climate change. As Vicki Arroyo says, it’s time to prepare our homes and cities for our changing climate, with its increased risk of flooding, drought and uncertainty. She illustrates this inspiring talk with bold projects from cities all over the world — local examples of thinking ahead.
