Today marks the start of COP21! Make it last keeps keeps track of important happenings at the climate conference.

Today marks the launch of the 21st conference on climate in Paris (COP21), lasting until 11 December. Here are some happenings that took place on the first day. 

– Already yesterday the world united in the Global Climate March, with 175 countries participating in different events and protests across the globe to call for a climate change. One of the most engaged protesters may have been Londons queen-of-punk and climate activist Vivienne Westwood. In Paris, the march had to be cancelled due to the recent terror attacks, but the demonstration was still impressively manifested through 22 000 empty shoes, representing marchers that would have taken the streets.

– French President Francois Hollande welcomed 150 heads of state. This extensive participation makes COP21 one of the largest diplomatic conferences to date. The day ended with Francois Hollande having dinner with Barack Obama at Élysée Palace.

– Today also marks the launch of Mission Innovation (Clean Tech) initiative, a commitment where the United States will double their budgets for research and development by 2020.
