Lima, the last crucial step before the Paris Summit in 2015

Everything starts in Lima - COP20For the past seven years, GERES has been participating in all the Conferences of the Parties on climate change in an attempt to influence the fate of our planet's climate system along with the other civil society actors. And each year, we have left the conference with an overwhelming feeling of frustration.

But this year must be the opportunity to turn the ship around and trigger a virtuous dynamic that will allow us to succeed in the next step. This step will be the Paris summit in 2015 and it will be a very crucial one.
