Program Manager and Senior Communications Officer, Connect4Climate and World Bank Group
Lucia Grenna is program manager of Connect4Climate, the World Bank Group’s global partnership program, and senior communications officer in the operational communications unit of the World Bank Group.
Connect4Climate is a global partnership program launched by the World Bank Group and the Italian Ministry of Environment, joined by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development, that takes on climate change by promoting solutions and empowering people to act – of which Sport4Climate is a key initiative. Launched at the "Climate Change: What the Olympics have to do with that" symposium at Museum of Tomorrow, on July 28 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the campaign ‘1.5C: the record we must not break’ aims to create a sense of curiosity in the wider audience around the 1.5°C goal set in the Paris Agreement, complementing and expanding the successful and ongoing #1o5C campaign, promoted by the Climate Vulnerable Forum.
It also builds on the #Sport4Climate campaign, launched in 2014 to leverage the influence of sports persons to advocate for climate action.
