Mayor Miller holds press conference to discuss C40 Seoul Declaration
  
Toronto Mayor David Miller, Chair of the C40 Large Cities Group combating climate change, will hold an interactive press conference to discuss next steps of this important international organization.

The Mayor will be available exclusively through Cisco Systems’ TelePresence video conferencing technology and this event will include a Q and A session.

Who: Mayor David Miller
Where: Cisco Systems, Brookfield Place, Wellington Tower, 35th Floor, Toronto
When: Wednesday, May 20. Arrival time for media set-up: 5:30 p.m. Press conference at 6 p.m.

The C40 -- which represents 40 of the world's largest cities committed to tackling climate change --is currently holding its third biennial summit in Seoul, Korea.

Cities have a central role to play in tackling climate change, particularly as cities bear a disproportional responsibility for causing it. In fact, cities consume 75 per cent of the world's energy and produce 80 per cent of its greenhouse gas emissions. This is why it is so important for cities to work together to set the agenda and show leadership on this issue.

Through effective partnership working with the Clinton Climate Initiative, C40 is delivering emissions reductions and better energy efficiency.

NB…This availability is being held exclusively for Toronto media at the earliest possible time that respects both your deadlines and events in Seoul. However, because of the time difference, final official press releases and copies of the declaration my not be available until 8 p.m. EST on Wed., May 20 at the earliest. We are working to get them sooner.
