Fruitful talks on Climate Change and Innovation
For the touring and cross-national conference series on climate change,
the Consulate General of France in Vancouver has been partnering with:
Building up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference to be hosted by France in December 2015 (COP 21 - Paris Climate 2015), the Embassies of France in both Canada and the United States organized FACTS (French Ameri-Can Climate Talks).
This conference series across seven cities in the United States and Canada involved renowned scientists, civil society representatives, NGOs, political figures, journalists, energy companies, innovative businesses and entrepreneurs.
In partnership with the Simon Fraser University, the Embassy of France in Canada, and the Consulate General of France in Vancouver organized a conference to discuss how green innovations can contribute to solving the climate change challenge.
Whether it is for mitigating our emissions and create new consumption or transportation paths, or to help better assess and react to the threats poses by climate change, green innovations will be an important part to both fight and adapt to climate change.
Key speakers from both Canada and France have been exchanging ideas at SFU Woodwards, Goldcorp Centre for the Arts. Exchanges with the audience has been extremely fruitful during the conference. The theatre was completely full and an overflow area needed to be open within the university.
The conference has been webcasted in live, and the recording is now available.
Thanks again for the support of those who made this conference possible:
Our media partner helped us to raise public interest towards green innovations and upcoming climate negociations.
