City of Miami 'Going Green' in Support of
Paris Climate Accord

(Miami, FL June 2, 2017) - The City of Miami has joined the international movement in support of the Paris climate accord. This evening, Miami City Hall and the Miami Tower will be illuminated in green to express our commitment to the Paris Agreement.

Earlier today, City of Miami Mayor Tomas Regalado joined mayors across the country in signing the Climate Mayors letter promising to "adopt, honor, and uphold the commitment to the goals enshrined in the Paris Agreement."

Following the signing of the letter, Commissioner Ken Russell reached out to the owners of the Miami Tower and City administration to request that they light the buildings green as a beacon of resiliency that will be visible across the city. The two buildings will stay green over the weekend.

"The City of Miami is going green by standing in solidarity with cities across the world to protect the future of our environment," said Commissioner Russell. "Miami is the front line in not only a battle against sea level rise, but for universal understanding and acceptance of climate science."

"Having City Hall shining green sends a clear message that we care about the environment and that Miami will be moving forward to protect this and the next generation," said Mayor Regalado.
