The Twentieth Conference of the Parties (COP 20) of the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) is happening in Lima, Peru since December 1st, 2014, which will end on December 12, 2014. It gathered about 15,000 people, who represent 195 countries and stakeholders, to negotiate and shape the contribution they will give to vastly reduce their carbon emission. It is a crucial step before reaching a climate change agreement in Paris in 2015. “Voices for Climate“, a platform that provides exhibition and interaction spaces for worldwide visitors, is designed to facilitate communication between different stakeholders and raise awareness about climate change surrounding the five emblematic themes: Forest, Mountains and Water, Oceans, Energy, and Sustainable Cities.
