4-5 June 2015 – (Marseille, France) GERES – Mediterranean Civil Society Forum in the run up to the 2015 Paris Climate Conference

The French Green Partnerships partner, GERES, informs that to prepare the ground for the COP21 in Paris, the Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur region will host a conference with the key actors from the Mediterranean at Villa Méditerranée on June 4th and 5th, under the patronage of French President François Hollande.

It will highlight the common commitment to adapting and fighting against climate change, as well as the contributions of governments, local authorities, associations, businesses, and networks working as catalysts for sustainable development.

Besides setting the goal of contributing to the construction of a true Mediterranean positive agenda, the event also aims to highlight the opportunities that the fight against climate change offers, beyond the constraints and to contribute with concrete and shared proposals to a “Mediterranean of projects”. It will help to strengthen the global efforts to fight against climate change, and will reaffirm it as a major element of the Mediterranean integration.
