Governments, civil society and business representatives are convening in Copenhagen on 7–18 December for a United Nations conference on combating climate change. European Environment Agency will host several events and contribute to some of the many activities taking place around the city.

A feast for the eyes: Climbing Change by Antoine Le Menestrel

At 17.00 on Tuesday 8 December, Antoine Le Menestrel will perform a thrilling dramatic ascent of the facades of the EEA and the French Embassy at Kongens Nytorv, Copenhagen. The French climber and his company, Lézards Bleus, will use the monumental architecture, music and light to draw the public's attention to the urgent need to tackle climate change.

Joint photo exhibition 'Climate change(s) people's stories: let's act!'

From 30 November to 18 December, large images will be displayed on the facades of the French Embassy, the EEA and the Academy of Fine Arts at Kongens Nytorv, calling for commitment to battle climate change and stressing the urgency of the situation. The exhibition presents the plight of those who already endure the impacts of climate change.
