Building up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference to be hosted by France in December 2015 (COP 21 - Paris Climate 2015), the French Ameri-Can Climate TalkS (FACTS) conference series is back for a second edition with 12 events across Canada and the United States involving renowned scientists, civil society representatives, NGOs, political figures, journalists and entrepreneurs. In preparation for the United Nations Conference, it seems important to consider the challenge of climate change not only in the context of a shared emissions burden but also as an opportunity to create employment, economic growth and innovative modes of production and consumption.
On August 27, 2015, the French Ameri-Can Climate TalkS (FACTS) will be traveling to Raleigh to hold a conference highlighting how climate change affects the agriculture and its economy. Held at North Carolina State University, the conference welcomes a variety of speakers and panelists to explore the interconnectedness of Climate and Agriculture and advance greater understanding of economic, environmental and societal impacts as well as opportunities for innovation, adaptation and solution-driven approaches.
FACTS Raleigh is organized by the Office for Science and Technology at the Consulate general of France in Atlanta and the North Carolina State University. The event is free and open to the public. Please click on this button for free registration:
