Two of myclimate projects were selected and announced as „Lighthouse Activities“ that combat climate change and contribute to the local communities. United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, as well as the Secretary of the UNFCCC Christiana Figueres celebrated the nine activities selected.

They were reviewed by an international advisory panel as part of the UNFCCC’s Momentum for Change Initiative, which is funded by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. „The examples are inspiring and encouraging, not least for governments who have already set the course towards greater climate resilience, but who need to take the next essential steps to galvanize the speed and scope of climate action,“ said Figueres.

Three of the myclimate partners and beneficiaries from the organic waste compost project in Nepal and four from the energy efficiency project for brick producers in Peru joined us at the celebration. This award is a great encouragement for our local partners and let us hope that these good examples will also encourage others to take action.
