NEW ORLEANS, LA (WVUE) -

Mayor Mitch Landrieu will join a group of mayors, local governors and representatives of the United Nations for a two-day summit at the Vatican July 21 and 22.

The Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences will host a workshop entitled “Modern Slavery and Climate Change: The Commitment of the Cities” and a symposium entitled “Prosperity, People, and Planet: Achieving Sustainable Development in Our Cities." The group will discuss topics that include climate change, human trafficking and sustainable development.

During the summit, Landrieu will speak about the challenges New Orleans has faced and how the city has become a model for resilience and sustainability. In August the city will releases a report as part of its work with 100 Resilient Cities pioneered by the Rockefeller Foundation.
