On December 12, 2015, 195 countries, including Canada and France, reached the Paris Agreement sealing their shared ambitions to fight against climate change.

On the occasion of the 5th anniversary of the Paris Agreement, and on the eve of the London Climate Summit on December 12, Isabelle Hudon, Canada's Ambassador to France, organised a transatlantic dialogue with two key players in the COP21 negotiations: Catherine McKenna, Head of the Canadian delegation during COP21, and Laurent Fabius, President of the COP21.

This high-level conversation was a great opportunity to underline the conditions that led to a successful COP21 in 2015, to take stock of the past five years, and to draw future perspectives by identifying opportunities from the current sanitary and geopolitical context.

This event will take place on the Zoom platform in French with simultaneous interpretation in English.
