As part of the 21st climate conference (COP 21), we invite you to explore some of the solutions to fight climate change through a Magnum Photos / UNEP exposure for COP 21.
The magnitude of global warming may make any reflection relating to its impacts trivial and discouraging. What can a person, or even an isolated state, do to slow or halt climate change? For over two years, photographers from the Magnum Photos Agency travel the world display pictures with some of the most promising solutions.
The implementation of efficient lighting in Chile with the establishment of a bus rapid transit in Addis Ababa, many will act to maintain the temperature rise to below 2 degrees Celsius above the temperature pre-industrial era. The photographs taken by the Magnum Photos Agency show that we all have the power to change things. Together we have the power to build a sustainable future.
On December 9, 2015, you will find experts on climate, members of UNEP and IPMA at the Auditorium Jean Rouch.
In partnership with UNEP (United Nations Environment Programme). Created in 1972, UNEP is the voice of the Nations ystem in environmental matters.
