Smart Climate Online & Face to Face Activity

Dec 1st - Jan 15th 

Climate change is not a myth and its initial effects are already being felt. Greenhouse gas emissions from human activities are the main cause.  In the future the consequences can be major and jeopardize our environment and our society, rise of sea level, natural disasters, destruction of ecosystems, and migration of human and wild life.

A key objective of COP21 is to limit to 2°C the increase in global temperature to limit these consequences. But the COP21 is an agreement between states.


Together we can create and innovate to help citizens and businesses to improve their relationship with the environment and play our part to limit global warming.

While ahead of the COP21 negotiations, we want to hear your voice, your ideas for how technology can be leveraged to influence change and reduce the harmful effects on the climate!

Your ideas will be grounded in the project initiated by DigiCOP.life a Smart Climate Forum, to make them live and be adopted by member companies!

You can participate in this event by attending in person in Paris or joining the online event.
