Corporate COP21 Special: a tour of Paris's lobbying hotspots

Join AITEC, ATTAC France, Corporate Europe Observatory, l'Observatoire des Multinationales and the Transnational Institute for a guided 'lobby tour' of Paris's climate criminals, with a special focus on the ongoing UN climate talks in the French capital, COP21.

With information from the new Paris Lobby Planet (Corporate COP21 Special), hear how the dirtiest corporations are lobbying to stop climate action and greenwashing to present fossil fuels or industrial agriculture as solutions to climate change. Also expect to visit other climate criminals, such as international institutions and world governments, all hard at work to maintain business as usual.
