A series of film screenings, performances and discussions have been organised in Swansea to coincide with the UN Paris conference on climate change.
For two weeks in November and December 2015, the world’s leaders will come together in Paris for COP21, a crucial conference to try to achieve a new international agreement on climate change, aiming to keep global warming below 2°C. Hundreds of thousands of people from around the world are also going to Paris to make their voices heard…but lots who care deeply, can’t be there. So, a group of artists and environmentalists are bringing it back home to Swansea with COP SWANSEA (1, 2 & 3) – three events combining discussions, creative offerings from local performers, and film screenings. Three opportunities to share our concerns and solutions; to talk about our fears and plan actions; to get better informed about the scale of the challenge and what we can all do to play our part in changing things for the better.
