Washington, DC – Today, the U.S. Conference of Mayors (USCM) announced the organization’s delegation to COP27, the United Nation’s Climate Change Conference in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt.

Delegation members include Austin (TX) Mayor Steve Adler, Burnsville (MN) Mayor Elizabeth Kautz, and Des Moines (IA) Mayor Frank Cownie. Also attending will be Greenville (MS) Mayor Errick Simmons, Oakland (CA) Mayor Libby Schaaf, San Jose (CA) Mayor Sam Liccardo, and Santa Rosa (CA) Mayor Chris Rogers.

“With this bipartisan delegation, the U.S. Conference of Mayors is proud to continue its longstanding commitment to climate action and international collaboration on this vital issue. America’s mayors know the cost of inaction because they see the consequences in their communities, in the lives of their constituents, and in the bottom lines of their budgets. In response, mayors across the country have been driving real solutions that have reduced our climate footprint and made our cities stronger and more resilient. We look forward to partnering with our international colleagues on this critically important work and sharing how mayors are leading in this fight,” said USCM CEO and Executive Director Tom Cochran.
