Here are all the videos and reports from our conferences at the 2015 Solutions' Gallery!

Date : 2 - 9 december

The Shift Project was at the Solutions Gallery from the 2nd to the 9th of December, a few hundred meters away from the Blue Zone of COP21. The Shift Project organized three plenary sessions, where numerous climate change experts and officials from various organizations were invited.

The videos of our plenary sessions are now available online, so that everyone can benefit from the exciting debates that took place.

We hope that you will enjoy (maybe for the second time for those of you who were there) these three debates !
