Building up to the United Nations Climate Change Conference to be hosted by France in December 2015 (COP 21 - Paris Climate 2015), the French Ameri-Can Climate TalkS (FACTS) conference series is back for a second edition with 12 events across Canada and the United States involving renowned scientists, civil society representatives, NGOs, political figures, journalists and entrepreneurs. In preparation for the United Nations Conference, it seems important to consider the challenge of climate change not only in the context of a shared emissions burden but also as an opportunity to create employment, economic growth and innovative modes of production and consumption.
