Boston Mayor Marty Walsh is wrapping up a two-day climate summit in Beijing. The summit included leaders from more than 50 U.S. and Chinese cities. Their focus: creating strategies that put cities at the forefront of efforts to curb climate change.

Walsh's visit marks the first time a Boston mayor has been to China since Kevin White went there in 1982. And in Beijing, Secretary of State John Kerry announced that Boston will host the summit next year.
