The “France-Hong Kong Month of Environment”, 20 September-20 October 2016
During the 2015 Paris Climate Conference (COP21), for the first time in over 20 years of UN negotiations, 196 countries joined forces to achieve a legally binding and universal agreement on climate, with the aim of keeping global warming below 2°C. To keep this momentum going, the Consulate General of France in Hong Kong and Macau is launching the first edition of the France - Hong Kong Month of Environment.
From Sept. 20th to Oct. 20th, 4 weeks will be dedicated to the exploration of 4 natural elements (#earth, #wind, #fire, #water). The Month of Environment will be the opportunity for each of us to open our eyes to a new eco-conscious mindset and be welcomed into a world of new lifestyle alternatives, through debates and conferences, workshops, film screenings, and concerts!
