ArtCOP21 - Professional Workshop: 3-4 December (Paris, France)

Follow-us live on 3 and 4 December! #ArtCOP21

In December 2015, thousands of civilian actors, climate based foundations and NGO’s will descend on Paris  for COP21 – the 21st United Nations conference of climate change. The agenda of COP21 is primarily scientific and political, the question is will they achieve the necessary  global agreements that will address the seriousness of the climate challenge. ArtCOP21, initiated by COAL and Cape Farewell, will stage city-wide cultural events that address climate as a people challenge and work to create a cultural blueprint of positive and sustainable change.

On the Move is one of the partners of ArtCOP21, particularly for the Professional Workshop (3-4 December 2015).

In the framework of the COP21 event, COAL, Julie’s Bicycle, IFACCA, La Gaîté Lyrique and On the Move will gather some 150 international key players from more than 25 countries to define together how the cultural sector can better embed sustainable development in its activities.

This Professional Workshop is based on a series of preliminary reports and international recommendations. Based on an exchange of best practices, the workshop aims to reinforce cross-sectorial dialogues between various types of actors.

The objective is also to highlight the necessity of a focused support and adapted funding mechanisms to ensure the leadership of the cultural sector with regards to sustainable development.

This workshop is co-curated by COAL, Julie’s Bicycle, IFACCA, On the Move in partnership with IETM, Imagine 2020 and GALA.

The Workshop also receives contributions from Institut Français in China (Consulat Général de la France à Wuhan), AC/E, KulturFörderPunkt-Berlin, The British Council-France and from the following Foundations: Asia-Europe Foundation, European Cultural Foundation, Hivos and Doen Foundation
