Pathway to Paris is an initiative in partnership with 350.org that brings together musicians, artists, activists, academics, politicians and innovators to participate in a series of events and dialogues to help raise consciousness around the urgency of climate action and the importance of establishing an ambitious, global, legally binding agreement at the UN Climate Change Conference in Paris in December 2015.
Co-founded by musician-activist-organizers Jesse Paris Smith and Rebecca Foon, Pathway to Paris kicked off with an intimate evening of music and speakers at Le Poisson Rouge immediately following the People’s Climate March in New York City in September 2014, with a series of similar events unfolding in New York and Montreal over the ensuing year. The final Pathway to Paris concert will take place December 4th 2015 in Paris and will include the musicians and speakers listed below (among others still to be announced):

Pathway to Paris is a collaboration with 350.org, with support and sponsorship from Tree Laboratory, Sustainability Solutions Group, Modo Yoga NYC and The Flux.
