Climate

Global climate change summit open to all!

Launched during COP21, Climate Chance aims to become the major annual event that brings together all international non-state players who are committed to fighting climate change. Local authorities, businesses (particularly SUEZ), associations, scientists and citizens are invited to attend this summit, which for its first year will be hosted by Nantes Métropole from 26 to 28 September 2016.

Held a few months after the Paris Agreement, this summit will be an opportunity to assess the pledges made by States, to plan future work, and to discuss the major emerging actions against climate change.

Plenary sessions, forums and workshops with key international figures in the fight against climate change will allow us to take a closer look at crucial issues, such as the indissoluble link between climate and development, the new sustainable city framework, the mobilisation of local actors and economic stakeholders, etc.

  • September 26, from 1.30pm to 3pm: workshop Farming and the preservation of resources
