The Cultural Agenda of the COP21 realized by COAL and Cape Farewell is online. From now on, follow all the cultural news of the COP21 on

At the end of 2015, Paris will host the 21st United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21). This conference is a decisive step in the negotiation of the future international agreement to fight against climate change.

In this context, ArtCOP21 offers a framework to stimulate, coordinate and encourage all organizations and artistic initiatives willing to participate in this exceptional event to imagine together a creative and sustainable future. ArtCOP21 is certified by the General Secretariat of the COP21, the City of Paris and supported by many institutional partners.

ArtCOP21 has set up the Paris Climate 2015 cultural agenda, a digital tool for disseminating and promoting the best cultural initiatives around the COP21. From September to December, this agenda will guide us in Île-de-France, in the regions and in the world, to discover artistic events related to the climate.

Artists and cultural actors are invited to participate in ArtCOP21 by registering their events online. Exhibitions, meetings, performances, shows, screenings, concerts, public readings, participatory workshops, competitions or any other cultural events that deal with climate change in an inspiring way can benefit from the visibility and impact of this common platform. ArtCOP21 is committed to selecting the best projects and promoting them.

This agenda will also come to life throughout the COP21 at the Gaîté lyrique, which will be transformed into an essential meeting place for cultural actors and professionals. Debates, screenings, concerts, workshops, resource center, will bring to the general public and political actors other ways of understanding the complexity of the climate challenge through a multiplicity of views and creative alternatives.

The agenda will be officially launched on September 17, register your actions as soon as possible!
