Boston mayor flies to the Vatican, but this time will come back in a few days

Mayor Wu and family and two BPS students are at the Vatican this week for a climate summit hosted by the Pope.

Wu will co-chair a session on "financing resiliency" tomorrow and will "showcase Boston as a champion on climate action, while learning from other global leaders about best practices," according to her office. She will also "give remarks for a discussion called 'Governance, Energy.' " Also:

While in Italy, she will also meet with the Mayor of Rome and visit towns with ties to Boston’s heritage and that of her own family. The Mayor will visit Sulmona, a town with strong ties through immigration to Boston’s North End; and attend a commemorative event in Coreno Ausonio, where her children will see the hometown that their great great-grandparents emigrated from. Two students from Boston Public Schools’ BCLA-McCormack will also be attending the Vatican summit. They will be two of eight young people from around the world to participate in Session XII - Voices of the Youth.

Also attending the summit: Gov. Healey and two UMass Boston professors.
