Our Common Future Under Climate Change

International Scientific Conference 7-10 JULY 2015 Paris, France



In addition to the scientific conference sessions, the organizers encouraged other interested and relevant stakeholders, including scientific institutions, the private sector, NGOs, think tanks, young scientists and/or student organisations, artists (the list is not exhaustive) to propose Side Events.

These Side Events created links between scientists and civil society in order to develop more bridges between knowledge and solutions and they were designed to reach a broader audience beyond the scientific community.

The multiple themes of the side events reflect the complexity and the variety of domains concerned by climate change.

Side Events were reviewed according to the following criteria:

  • Relevance to the scope and objectives of the conference

  • Openness to diversity of view

  • Side Event to be held in the period mentioned above (June 1, 2015 to July 15, 2015, excluding the slots dedicated to the Plenary Sessions of the Conference)
