On June 4th-5th, MedCities participated in the conference MEDCOP21, held in Marseille under the auspices of President François Hollande. The conference was the occasion to give voice to Mediterranean actors on climate change actions as a preparation for the COP21 conference that will take place in Paris on December 2015.

MedCities participated as a discussant in the workshop on sustainable cities and territories organised jointly by AVITEM and IPEMED. During the workshop, organised in two sessions, around 100 participants discussed on how cities are key actors in order to fight climate change and to engage citizens and associations through projects and awareness actions.

The conference resembled more than 2000 participants with relevant political figures and the main stakeholders of the Mediterranean region related to sustainable development and climate change-related issues.
