Rabat – L’Institut Francais au Maroc in Casablanca will be holding a month long series of public discussion and presentations in recognition of the World Climate Change Summit on November 29 in Paris (COP21).
Tailored for public education and participation, one of the main displays, “60 Solutions for the Climate,” was created by the l’Agence Française de
Développement (AFD), a French organization dedicated to socio-economic development. The exhibition is a series of sixty photos illustrating ways the public can participate in environmental protection.
Some events will be made specifically for young attendees. One exhibition will give young students six minutes to present their proposals for a project to help environmental protection, which will be judged by a panel of experts.
The event is supported by many Moroccan organizations, including Hassan I University of Settat, Hassan II university of Casablanca and AXA Assurance Maroc.
In its third year, the COP21 conference strives to encourage an international discussion on reducing green-house gases and slowing the process of global warming.
This summit will hold discussions from environmental and economic experts on supporting green-energy industries.
Morocco has recently received international attention for its new solar energy plant in Ouarzazate. It is projected to provide solar power to one million people and will be the world’s largest solar plant.
