Artists for Climate Change: Support for Paris 2015

Paris Climate Change Conference is attracting interest not only from policy makers and businesses but also from artists.

In the lead up to the 2015 Paris Climate Change Conference / COP 21 of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC), major contemporary artists from around the world are mobilizing action around climate change and desertification through art projects to be displayed in public spaces of “Greater Paris”, stretching from the Paris city center to the Conference site, in Le Bourget.

During the event, a charity auction of artworks from the art projects will be conducted by the premier International Auction House, Christie’s, together with the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification (UNCCD), in support of actions against climate change and desertification.
