Climate is everyone’s business. Without the involvement of citizens, international negotiations taking place during the 21th United Nations Conference on Climate Change (COP21) will not succeed.
To give the public a voice that is heard by the decision makers, COAL (the Coalition for Art and Sustainable Development) and LEMOAL & LEMOAL Architects have designed COPBox – a participatory project designed to collect citizens’ voices and raise awareness of the climate challenge. This public pop-up space allows citizens to share their ideas about climate change, by recording a personalized video message to the negotiators from 195 countries who are gathering later this year at COP21.
These messages are the symbol of a collective and international mobilization for climate action. They are freely available onnline; will be transmitted to the Secretariat General of the COP21; and a selection of the best messages will be published on the official COP21 website.
COPBox tours to a dozen venues in and around Paris, before reaching COP21 this December. Find out where it is and how you can take part.
