The 27th Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP27) is being held in Sharm el-Sheikh, Egypt, from November 6 to 18. What are the main advances at this world summit? What impact can we expect in Quebec? And how can we ensure fair and equitable climate policies for the most vulnerable? Register for this webinar to learn more about these issues.

Seven years after the COP21 in Paris, the urgency to act and to set more ambitious targets was necessary. The growing impacts of climate disruption have been felt very clearly in recent months and the expectations of civil society are growing, both for mitigation and adaptation to the new reality. More and more voices are being raised to bring to the forefront the notions of climate justice, sobriety and resilience, including in the business community.

As Montreal prepares to host the 15th Conference of the Parties of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (COP15), Quebec is mobilizing to align the two agendas in order to combine biodiversity protection with the fight against climate change.

Philippe Poitras

Idéateur et co-fondateur de Unpointcinq.ca et co-fondateur et co-directeur de Futur Simple coopérative de solidarité

Philippe has been working at the intersection of social entrepreneurship, public policy issues, strategy and social marketing for 30 years now. In 2015, he imagined a positive media on climate action in Quebec and in 2017, he co-founded Unpointcinq.ca, the very first solution media entirely dedicated to covering climate action in Quebec.

Philippe has a 29 year old son who will live through the disruptions and challenges of climate change in the coming decades.
