Online : the press review of ArtCOP21

With more than 550 events registered on the ArtCOP21 cultural agenda, including 25 co-produced by COAL, 54 countries represented and nearly 250 international artists and professionals gathered at the Gaité Lyrique, culture has made its mark on the political agenda of the climate negotiations in 2015. This is evidenced by our 2015 press review, which has no less than 361 mentions!

Our ArtCOP21 program, thanks to the multiplicity of its actions and its global mechanism, has brought an inspiring and creative approach to the necessary transformation of society and reaffirmed the central place of culture in the ecological transition and sustainable development.

Lauranne Germond, director of COAL, invited to present ArtCOP21 and report on cultural mobilization during Francois Hollande’s press conference at the Elysée Palace “En avant la COP21” on September 10, 2015

COAL relied on the services of the agency Hexagramm to ensure the press relations of ArtCOP21 and to promote the cultural dimension of the COP21 and the mobilization of its actors as a whole to more than 5000 journalists.
