UN Climate Change’s Momentum for Change initiative recently released its new, interactive online report to highlight the climate action milestones that it achieved last year.
By shining light on the most inspiring and transformational mitigation and adaptation activities, known as ‘Lighthouse Activities’, Momentum for Change aims to strengthen motivation, spur innovation and catalyze further change towards a low-emission, high-resilient future in line with the Paris Climate Change Agreement.The Lighthouse Activities are showcased at the annual United Nations climate change conferences.
Last year, nineteen Lighthouse Activities from various countries were recognized for demonstrating diverse solutions to tackle climate change. From companies that have gone climate-neutral to organizations that tackle plastic pollution to governments that finance green projects – all the winners aimed toward making a difference.

Commenting on the significance of the Momentum for Change initiative, UN Climate Change’s top official, Patricia Espinosa, said: “Now that the era of implementation of the Paris Climate Change Agreement has begun, each of the Momentum for Change Lighthouse Activities serves as a real-world reminder that climate action is not just possible – it is the path we must get on to achieve the goals laid out in Paris.”
