Les ATELIERS POC21 @ICI montreuil
In the middle weekend of COP21, citizens from around the world are organizing the Global Village of Alternatives in the city of Montreuil, just next to Paris. There, we will organize a big workshop and prototyping event with POC21 project holders, at ICI Montreuil , a large co-operative makerspace. This will be the ideal place for our pioneers to disseminate their ideas, tools and solutions toward regular citizens.

Located at Le 104, a stunning cultural center in the middle of a working-class neighbourhood north of Paris, the Climate Action Zone is a meeting space for climate activists and citizens, overflowing with life, creative ideas, joyful resistance and solutions. This space is made possible by Coalition Climat 21, which is a network of 200+ european NGOs working together to mobilize civil society against climate change.
In this incredible space, the POC21 team will curate the “Maker Space”, a 170 sqm area where we will replicate part of the Millemont exhibition, showcasing the 12 prototypes developed during the camp, and invite local makers and fablabs to offer educational workshops to visitors about how the maker movement and open source can empower people in developing their own climate solutions.
