The various metropolitan centers around the world will partake in this war against climate change. The knowledge resources of the planet will be laid open for all the citizens to apply in a bid to increase environmentalism and sustainability not to mention conservation. 

Economies will have to cut back on carbon emissions. That is the most immediate thing on the agenda. The private sector is funding the whole effort.

The Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon was very supportive of this initiative. He spoke of how sustainable cities were the lifeblood of the economies of the future which will be leaner, cleaner and greener.

This coalition would go a long way towards changing the world for the better. A pledge has been made by the people behind this drive that 40% of the carbon dioxide emissions will be eliminated by the time 2030 rolls in. This is a lofty goal. It may come true as well which would be a salubrious thing for the environment.
