ON DECEMBER 12, 2020, THE PARIS ACCORD FOR CLIMATE CHANGE CELEBRATES FIVE YEARS!
To celebrate the anniversary of this unprecedented step in the fight against global warming - agreed at the COP21 in Paris in 2015 - the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs has chosen to form an alliance with our Maskbook project!
This is no coincidence - Maskbook was created for COP21 and has been featured at every Climate COP since!
Our joint campaign began on the very day of the anniversary of the Paris Agreement, December 12, with a film broadcast by the Ministry for Europe and Foreign Affairs on its media platforms, produced by our association, Art of Change 21. This film brings together many personalities from 18 countries, masked by artists, who are committed to environmental action.

This video, supported by the Schneider Electric Foundation, kicks off a larger Maskbook campaign aimed at all those who wish to mark their support for the implementation of the Paris Agreement in a creative way, and for anyone who wants to join in the fight against climate change and, more generally, is interested in the preservation of our planet. In the coming months, this campaign will also benefit from an unprecedented mobilization of the French diplomatic and cultural network.
You too can support the Paris Agreement. It’s very easy, you just create your mask and then post your masked portrait and message to the Participation section on our website.
This campaign aims to unite us, bring together our talents, and remind us how climate issues are our number one priority!
Paris Agreement's commitments need to be fully implemented!
Let's keep the momentum going until COP26 in Glasgow, which takes place at the end of 2021.
