The Summit, which will be held on 21 July 2015 in Paris, France, will be a highlight of the global mobilization in preparation for the 21st Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP 21), which will be hosted by France in December this year.

At the Summit of the Consciences, participants will launch a Call of Consciences for the Climate to influence everyone involved in the climate negotiations to decide and act for the sake of the planet and its inhabitants.
Also to be launched during the Summit is the “Why Do I Care?” campaign to encourage leaders, personalities and citizens from all over the world to share their commitment for the planet. Click here to participate in this campaign.
