From the big protests, to the major negotiations, long-nights readings text and long days organizing, discussing and debating all things climate change, there was a LOT of work (and exhaustion) going on at COP21!
But… that’s not quite the whole story. We, like everyone else at the COP, wear more than just one “hat” in our day! No matter the tough and tired road we always had some time for fun, celebrating climate accomplishments and just being silly and enjoying the beauty of the city and people we meet each and every day. It’s all about balance, after all – and not just for the planet, but for our health, too!
Without further ado, here are some silly moments from our team to you! Be sure to give yourself a dose of climate fun along with all that climate action in your day, too!
Guards just wanna have fun (and they all loved Canada!)
Every now and then, if you pause amid all the chaos at COP21, you might just spot a robot wandering the halls…
Always laughs and inspiration (“boos” and “cheers”!) at the Fossil of the Day!
We had some laughs pondering all the creative means people were using to be truly litter-free at this conference, but sometimes, they just stood there, confused!
The sun was angled just right – hilarious for me – meditative for Alex!
At last…the front of the plenary! Where’d everyone go? 😛
The place to be to take a break with friends – I hope all these critters found a good home!
Just moosin’ around!
The power was very real in this howl for climate action!
…and so were the laughs! 😛
Been there, done that!
Because you-only-do-COP21-once! #gravityshot #persistence #lastofthecaffeine
Who said every debreif was in a quiet, cold room? The end of week 1 means a debrief – party! Great to meet so many youth and share accomplishments so far!
In the CGA you never know who might show up…You also rarely actually see them. Because, this. #famousdesk?
Three generations, three people who seem to be in their own world at the moment. I wonder who grabbed the spotlight in the end?
“it’s coming from the other side!”
Nah, we just wanted to do a fun shot! Cheers to fantastic transit across the city! #citygoals
Celebrating this beautiful city – no matter the weather! #jumpshot #ParisPower
Daily fix of Ben&Jerry’s! #necessities
Well this is a different kind of protest – strong message and a chance to nap!
Whenever I see this, I laugh. #transitearswabs
Got a media pass and now actually in #bossmode!
Smiles = progress = I hope I get to sleep tonight!
WE KNEW IT! People really do carry bread around Paris – now we’re tired AND hungry!
The lovely ladies of the berg.
No ice was tasted in the making of this photo.
The title says it all!
The banners almost look real…We demand some Kentucky-fried Cauliflower!
Amazing 2 weeks! The force of climate action is strong with this pole – I mean country! 😀
The daily chase to the beautiful electric buses, always exciting! #beattherush
