Place to ‘B’ a headquarters for the media that aims at changing the way we talk about climate change and solutions. Just around the corner is the COP21 conference in Paris Nov 30th – Dec 11th which is one of the biggest international summits on climate change that will take place at the Paris-Le Bourget site. The conference should lead to an adoption of a universal agreement that will provide a framework for transition towards low carbon societies and economies able to withstand climate change. At the summit in Paris, Place to ‘B’ will be a available for storytellers from around the world eager to follow COP21’s negotiations on climate, with the desire to speak on these issues in many various ways, in order to make a difference. During the Climate Reality Leadership training in Miami held in September, I had the chance to meet and talk with Eco-journalist & blogger Anne-Sophie Novel founder of Place to ‘B.’ Anne is also a Doctor of Economics specializing in ecology and sustainable alternatives, social innovation and collaborative economy. A great place to ‘B’ if planning to attend COP21 in Paris, hear more from Anne about Place to ‘B’ and what it’s all about on the podcast.
Here is also the transcription of the audio podcast:
My name is Anne-Sophie I am the founder of Place to B, the ‘B’ is for blogger but it’s dynamic. It’s also for there is no planet ‘B’ what I saw in the march in Copenhagen in 2009 for the COP15, it’s also for area ‘B’ the name of the train that is getting to Le Bouget which is a place where the negotiation of UN will take place in Paris. It’s also the ‘B’ for the Belushi’s at the Le St. Christopher’s Inn which is the place where we will stay during the two weeks of the COP21. It’s based in Gare du Nord, so its really only 20 mins from Le Bouget. We got 600 beds so people can come and sleep there and then we will organize a morning briefing to tell the participants where they can go in Paris during the day and in the evening we have a briefing as well with experts, journalist, blogger or anyone that wants to come to speak about what happened during the negotiation. We will have some special focus also with artist and other people to try to expand our week and push the message differently. We will have like a maker space for information so its more like doing cross media connection and trying to innovate a bit and then we will have some concerts, some chatter places, people are free to do what they want and if you can’t sleep there you can also come to the co-workers space. To register is www.placetob.org and if you cannot be in Paris we got all of our events that will be livestream and you can participate online as well.
Rooms are still available for a place to stay in Paris for the negotiations at COP21.
