It was a pleasure to once more co-lead the jury in charge of selecting the winner of the Calouste Gulbenkian Prize for Humanity on Climate Change. Winners are awarded €1 M. This year the prize went for the Global Covenant of Mayors for Climate & Energy for their coordination of the global effort of cities to address climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts. The announcement was made in Lisbon, at the headwaters of the Foundation and the awarding ceremony took place in Glasgow at the COP26 – Climate Change Conference.
