Vancouver city council's unanimous decision to commit to running on 100 per cent renewable energy is the kind of political leadership the world desperately needs says Jørgen Randers, professor of climate strategy at the Norwegian Business School in Oslo, Norway.

"Despite the looming catastrophe of climate change the market will choose to do nothing," Randers said in the keynote speech at the ICLEI World Congress 2015, the triennial sustainability summit of local governments in Seoul, South Korea.

Watch: This is what 25,000 people for climate protection looks like

On Saturday April 11, 25,000+ beautiful people marched for climate action in Quebec City, as well as 15 other Canadian cities. It was one of Canada's biggest climate protests ever.

We told premiers a simple thing: they can't act on climate and approve tar sands pipelines at the same time. And we want clean energy solutions, now.

The day was emotional, beautiful, powerful. This is what 25,000 people for climate protection looks like.
