Climate Chance: concrete actions from civil society

Local authorities, businesses, associations, trade unions, scientific organisations and citizens from all countries are in the first line in the fight against climate change. This summit will be for them the chance to draw a picture of the state of action worldwide, to deepen the discussions on the successes and difficulties and to promote the pooling of experience and innovations, with the aim of highlighting the opportunities that arise from this resolute fight.

Climate Chance aims to become a regular event for the representatives of organised civil society involved daily in the fight against climate change, and will welcome participants from all over the world. This event will focus their mobilisation and contribute to consolidating their commitments over the long term, as it is through concrete actions carried by these actors that States will be able to meet the commitments made during the COP21.

Recognised for its commitment on climatic and environmental issues, with a dynamic local eco-system in this area, Nantes Métropole decided to create the first edition of Climate Chance. A global issue such as the climate question calls for local actions – the Métropole intends to create synergies between non-state actors worldwide, and thus support the success of this first edition, and perpetuate the event.


In the programme:

  • 6 plenary sessions : To explore the essential subjects in more depth by bringing together all the Climate Chance participants around the key climate challenges
  • 18 forums : To take stock of the progress by different actor coalitions based on thematic coalitions and on high-level participative dialogue
  • More than 65 workshops from the call for contributions: to draw a picture of the state of action worldwide
