From 2018 to 2020, the IWF is co-organized by a new partnership governance composed of Météo et Climat, EcoAct and IWC2
Facing an unavoidable global warming, we need to limit it by reducing our greenhouse gas emissions, but also to adapt, while respecting nature… It is important to make the link for greater climate mobilization. I look forward to seeing you in October 15-18, 2020 in Paris for the 17th edition of FIM!
Environmental awareness has increased and new virtuous consumption practices are developing. Individual and collective initiatives in favour of the climate are flourishing everywhere.
However, face to climate emergency and massive impoverishment of biodiversity, it is necessary to relentlessly continue to educate and raise awareness on these major issues.
This is the ambition of the International Weather and Climate Forum which empowers synergies between citizens, experts and decision-makers.
Directing economic models towards carbon neutrality to contain global warming below 2°C is a necessity and a requirement that must continue to be shared around the world. Civil society plays an important role here, especially companies and coalitions of actors who have continued to grow, mobilize and organize since the COP21. IWF’s commitment also accompanies this global transition by bringing many committed public, associative and private actors together. It promotes concrete solution sharing, and encourages everyone to act in favour of a resilient and virtuous world.
