Climate change is one of the most pressing issues of our time. In order to fight it, towns, regions, associations and many other non-state actors are stepping up and taking action.

For non-state actors serious about finding solutions to climate change, the place to be this year is the Climate Chance summit. It is a global event for non-state actors dedicated to concrete action on climate change, and will be taking place in Nantes, France, from 26 to 28 September.

The Climate Chance summit will address a vast range of topics, all concerning climate change; from biodiversity and transport to energy and agriculture and much more.
