From November 30th to December 11th 2015, France will enjoy the honour and privilege of hosting a major summit of paramount importance to the world. The 21st Conference of Parties to the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change will take place in the Paris-Le Bourget exhibition centre. Climate change will be the main topic of the conference, which comes at a crucial time for deciding the future of our planet.
COP 21; what’s it all about?
The Conference of Parties of the Convention brings together international decision-makers to debate the issue of how to reduce global warming. Different views will be presented and an agreement will be sought to improve the current situation. From the Americas, Asia, Africa, Europe and Oceania, the representatives of no fewer than 195 countries will be meeting in Paris to assess the difficulties we face and develop plans to protect the planet and its inhabitants. The goal is to maintain global warming below 2 °. The highly industrialised countries and other nations will attempt to find a means of achieving a legally binding universal agreement regarding climate change. This is a key event for the future and you can attend.
The Paris-Le Bourget site
Le Bourget is a city in the Seine-Saint-Denis department. It is well served by public transport, being located on the RER line B, which can take you to Charles de Gaulle / Roissy Airport without changing or return you to the centre of Paris (Châtelet) in twenty minutes. The conference will be held at the Parc des Expositions, a suitable space capable of accommodating the 40,000 participants expected. Spread over 18 hectares, the conference will be divided into three main areas. The conference centre, reserved for accredited persons only, will be the core of the COP. This is where discussions will take place and decisions will be made. Other areas will be open to the public and professionals. The ‘Galerie’ is an exhibition offering a complete overview of what can be done to anticipate and address climate change. The ‘Générations Climat’ spaces are open to all, and here you can attend debates about ecology and the preservation of the planet. A free exchange of ideas and a friendly atmosphere are anticipated.
