To Paris and Beyond


When: September 28, 2015

The corporate takeover of the UN climate talks and how we build a mass movement for a fossil-free future

Monday 28 September
7.30 – 9.30pm
Edinburgh Quaker Meeting House


  • Juliette Rousseau, coordinator of the pan-European Coalition Climat 21
  • Richard Dixon, director of Friends of the Earth Scotland
  • Jane Herbstritt, Global Justice Now
  • Chaired by Stop Climate Chaos Scotland

Our world leaders aren’t doing enough to stop climate change. With the power of the fossil fuel lobby influencing decisions, we don’t believe the UN climate talks in Paris will bring any real solutions to the climate crisis. But the Paris talks do give us a chance to strengthen the climate justice movement and showcase real, people-led solutions.

Come and hear from Juliette Rousseau of Coalition Climat 21, a European coalition of more than a hundred organisations and movements set up to strengthen and broaden the climate justice movement, so that it won’t just be the movement of the Paris climate talks, but the movement that will bring about necessary and lasting change. Find out what you can do here in Scotland or in Paris, and discuss how we continue to build the movement after the UN climate talks in Paris conclude.
