From 2018 to 2020, the IWCF is co-organized by a new partnership governance composed of Météo et Climat, EcoAct and IWC2. From 2021 to 2023, partnership governance became bilateral represented by Météo et Climat & IW2C.
Faced with the stakes of climate change, it is important to educate and to give the keys for action. It is one of the most important mission of the International Weather and Climate Forum, which is dedicated to share the knowledge of climate and atmospheric sciences. More than 30 years ago, the scientific community was already warning about the consequences of climate evolution et was calling for action towards the decrease in carbon emissions.
2022 is an important year for the climate with the conjunction of both the release of the 6th report of the IPCC and the perspectives of the COP 26 in Glasgow. The International Weather and Climate Forum will then offer an unique occasion to communicate and exchange about these challenges. We can not conceive our future anymore without societal deliberation and acknowledging this “ecological transition” which also include the preservation of biodiversity. We have to act now if we want to insure to the younger generations a climate that they’ll be able to adapt to, a climate that they’ll be able to adapt to at least for most of it. The programmation of the 19th edition of the IWCF falls within this context of emergency.
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.
