Biodiversity and climate change: creating new life possibilities

The event, organised by Unesco, will be held in Paris on February 9-10. It will bring together scientists, civil society, responsible and engaged citizens, youth, entrepreneurs, artists who will discuss the links between biodiversity and climate change, in the run-up to the 21st Conference of the Parties to the Un Framework Convention on Climate Change, which will be held in Paris in December 2015.

Is it nonetheless possible to keep hope and to act together to dream of other possibilities and to build them? Or are we condemned to impotence in face of disasters foretold? The Assises partners reject this impasse. Around the world, a growing number of initiatives are showing that it is possible to cope with the rhythm of renewal of ecosystems, and that using biodiversity is not necessarily inconsistent with its conservation. Far from being isolated and anecdotal examples, actions and initiatives to foster social transformation mobilize millions of people and affect all sectors of the global economy. How can we learn from such action and such actor networks? How can we best mobilize and share their solutions with decision-makers and skeptics? The Assises are conceived as a dedicated space for such a dialogue to development. An exchange that goes beyond the days of meetings in Paris, as it aims to build a community of practice, sharing actions and positive visions for the construction of alternative ways of life.
The meeting will focus in particular on three major themes: rethinking conservation; developing ecological solidarity and environmental justice; doing business differently

Each theme will involve cross-cutting perspectives from the available information and scientific findings, actions and solutions implemented at local and international levels followed by an interactive discussion on the present and possible futures.
