From 2018 to 2020, the IWF is co-organized by a new partnership governance composed of Météo et Climat, EcoAct and IWC2.
I look forward to seeing you at the 16th edition of the IWF, to be held from May 25 to 28, 2019 on the Place of Paris City Hall.
This edition will focus on the necessary evolution of the behaviors at a large scale: citizens but also governments, communities, companies, …. including the education system and NGOs that can play an important role in the dynamics of these changes.
I hope to see you soon to act for climate in everyday life.
Jean Jouzel, President of Météo et Climat, climatologist and former member of the IPCC Bureau (Organization co-Nobel Peace Prize in 2007).
The important thing today is to create a link between various publics, from the citizen to the collective, for a greater mobilization against climate issues!
In the context of reducing emissions and adapting to climate change, it is necessary that we ALL change our behaviors. For the first time, this theme will be common to the FIM 2019 General Public and Professional programs. On this occasion, the weather presenters from all over the world will affirm their role as “Climate Communicators” and will share their actions.
Christian Vannier, founder and director of the IWF, president of IW2C.
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.
