Profiles of Paris is a collection of narratives bringing together international leaders and changemakers to offer unique views on how the Paris Agreement was achieved and what lessons can be drawn for the future.
It is being launched on the eve of the 1-year anniversary of Donald Trump announcing his intent to withdraw the US from the Paris Agreement: May 31 0000 EST / 0500 UK / 0600 CEST.
It is an initiative of Global Optimism, a purpose-driven enterprise focused on social and environmental change. Its initiatives include Mission 2020 and Profiles of Paris, and it was co-founded by Christiana Figueres and Tom Rivett-Carnac.
