Fifteen inspiring and impactful projects tackling climate change are being showcased this week at COP24 in Katowice.

They are all winners of the year’s Momentum for Change platform, led by the United Nations Climate Change Secretariat, which rewards ‘innovative, scalable and replicable’ examples of innovation combating climate change: from businesses, governments, organisations, communities and cities. All the winner come under one of the initiative’s four focus areas: Planetary HealthClimate Neutral NowWomen for Results, and Financing for Climate Friendly Investment. And today the Momentum for Change team is holding an event where the four from the Planetary Health category will be celebrated. Our editor-at-large, Marc Buckley, will be moderating the event from 3pm to 4pm today. Follow @Momentum_UNFCCC for all the latest.
