From 30th November to 11th December, 195 countries will gather in Paris for the 21st Conference on climate, also known as COP 21.

In this perspective, Alliance Française de Bombay will organize workshops, screenings and debates to generate awareness about climate change, highlight this issue and discuss possible solutions.
