Regions, cities and citizens of the world are at the heart of the response to climate change, both for climate change mitigation and adaptation. It is by acting locally and regionally that the contribution to global goals will be most impactful. The mobilization of local elected officials, businesses and citizens, the integration of the activities of sub-national territories must be taken into account in the agreements resulting from the COP 21.

Following the international conference of 13th of April 2015, ARENE, in partnership with FEDARENE (European Federation of Agencies and Regions for Energy and the Environment), the European Committee of the Regions and Île-de-France Europe invite you to this day of international discussions at the Halle Pajol in Paris.

A roundtable in the morning will gather a panel of international actors operating at both local and global levels.

In the afternoon, eight workshops will invite us to analyze outstanding international local initiatives that contribute to the fight against climate change, to the local resource economy and the development of renewable energies.

By highlighting, through these initiatives, types of stakeholders, success factors and obstacles, we will consider the replicability of local actions and their contribution to global goals in the fight against climate change.
