To Paris With Love: Fantasy COP 21
CSI Annex, 720 Bathurst
Get engaged with the complex and sometimes surreal world of UN climate negotiations (aka "COPs") through interactive games and performances, food, drinks and skype-in updates with activists from Paris, where the world's leaders will be gathered to gamble on our future.
While high-level bureaucracy, carbon reduction targets, developing nation financing, and the threat of runaway global warming may not be everyone's favourite cup of tea, the Paris talks are crucial to the fate of the world and climate justice.
This Toronto evening of art, music and socializing will bring to life the high-stakes world of international climate deals, concretize the abstract, and juxtapose the surreal with the super-real in a world of changing climate and power imbalance.
