A conference in the perspective of COP21


2015 is an important year in the “Climate Agenda”: COP21, i.e. the international climate negotiations, will be a crucial moment to define a succession to the Kyoto Protocol. As we already did for Rio+20, we would like to bring a delegation to Paris in December in order to share the productions made in Brussels and give the opportunity to 15 young people from the European Conference to participate in 2 days of the Conference of Youth (COY11) and 2 days of COP21. The selection criteria are not defined yet, but they will be before the European Conference.
