Le premier volet de la COP2 Étudiante est l’organisation d’une “Conférence des Parties”, s’inspirant du modèle international des conférences sur le climat.


Our goal is to gather stakeholders of post-secondary education in an environment propitious for collaboration in order to end up with recommendations and common propositions about environmental issues such as:

Génération de demain : comment la former aux enjeux climatiques et écologiques ?

Building the campus of tomorrow: how can the university lead the way in terms of ecological transition?

Sustainability of the COP2 Étudiante: what monitoring and means for the implementation of commitments?

Why is it a COP ?

   In the wake of the COP 1 organised in Paris in October 2019, the COP 2 Étudiante aims to go further than raising awareness in post-secondary education and aspires to generate commitment. Consequently, it is very relevant for the COP 2 Étudiante to emphasise the Conference Of the Parties aspect for this second edition.
   It is a “COP” as it follows the same trend of the international conferences such as those leading to the Paris agreements: a meeting where all relevant stakeholders can come up with an agreement about an issue and the steps to take to tackle it.

Work groups

The participants of the COP will be split into 10 work groups, each tackling a concrete and relevant subject. These subjects were identified and suggested by national associations and our network of partners.

Each work group is made of:
  Students who are members of associations who enrolled in our process;
  Teaching or administrative staff or members of the board of educational institutions who enrolled in our process;
  Experts and political figures attending to the Fair or coming precisely for the work group.

Furthermore, professional enable shall chair a meeting in each committee on Saturday in order to stimulate creativity and the collaboration spirit of all the participants which is tightly intertwined to the COP2 Étudiante values.

Upstream preparation

In order to ensure the quality of the discussions and to allow each participant to prepare themselves, a few documents shall be published:

A summary

A summary of the consultation with the post-secondary educational institutions led by the COP2 Étudiante’s organizing team about their environmental policy as well as as an assessment of the local meetings;

A report

A preliminary report on each subject redacted by the mediators and the redactors.

Planning for the weekend

All the participants will meet up from Saturday April 4th at 10am to Sunday April 5th at 2pm for about ten hours of discussions in total. The work group sessions will be separated by common meetings in order to let everyone catch up about the progress of each work group.

“Grenoble’s agreement”

   Each work group shall come up with recommandations linked with concrete examples of achievable and concrete actions. These will be compiled into an agreement available not only to the participants but all stakeholders willing to commit to the project. The signers will be free to commit to one or more parts of the negotiated agreement.
