Hundreds of Little Suns will light up Ecole Massillon in the heart of Paris at nightfall. School children will form a human chain and carry the small, solar-powered lamps to make a statement about the importance of low-cost, grassroots solutions.

While politicians at the COP21 UN Climate Change Conference negotiate inter-governmental agreements. The march will end at the chapel of the school as an introduction to the concert of the New Yorker “Quartet: This Side Up : Oceans eat Cities”. The site-specific, mobile installation illuminated by Little Suns is organized by ARTPORT_making waves in collaboration with the École Massillon. Olafur Eliasson and Frederik Ottesen created Little Sun in 2012, a social business and global project addressing the need for sustainable power that benefits communities living off the grid.
