Sommet(s) pour le Climat is a project led by a group of French mountaineers, consisting of a collective crossing of the “Massif des Écrins” in the French Alps. The aim of the project is to promote useful solutions for a more ecological and sustainable world. On the occasion of the COP21, which will be held in Paris in December 2015, this project highlights the positive values of the mountain as well as the importance to mobilize the mountain networks to fight against climate change.
Several actions are proposed both at national and international levels, including:
- 21 day crossing across the peaks of the Massif des Écrins” (29 June – 19 July 2015);
- Simultaneous climbing all over the world to enhance the international dimension of the issue (11-12 July 2015);
- Organization of a photo contest :“photos décalées”.
The project is supported by different partners: FFCAM, Mountain Wilderness, Négawatt Association, Écrins National Park, Educ’Alpes, Réseau Action Climat, la Revue Durable.
