Art of Change 21 is a one-of-a-kind association that brings together artists, social entrepreneurs and young leaders who are deeply committed to sustainability and the environment, in order to create original, impactful solutions that address climate change and promote sustainable lifestyles.
Art of Change 21 started its activities in 2014 ahead of COP21, with the “Conclave” – an international event of co-creation that brought together artists, social entrepreneurs and leaders of the ecological transition from all over the world. Together they decided on two concrete actions to mobilize the public for the environment, and so the «Maskbook» and « Caire Game » projects were born. Today these two projects operate on a global scale, reaching out to over 10,000 people since their inception.
On October 2017, Art of Change 21 is organizing with the support of UN Environment a second edition of the “Conclave” at the Grand Palais in Paris.
The French association also plays a key role in the COP (United Nations Climate Change Conferences) and has participated in the COP21 (held in Paris in 2015) , the COP22 (held in Morocco in 2016) and will be at COP23 in Bonn, Germany.
Art of Change 21 is a not-for-profit association, created in 2014 and registered in France. Its main partners are UN Environment and the Schneider Electric Foundation. Its patrons are artist Olafur Eliasson and social entrepreneur Tristan Lecomte.
