A line-up of world-class leaders of change!

1000 SOLUTIONS FOR THE PLANET

The largest expo of solutions for the planet is still available online!
Over 3-days, visitors were able to test new technologies and innovative ideas or listen to hundreds of Start-Up pitches from future change-leaders.

2022 official selection of Solutions is still available online

THE  CHANGENOW EXPERIENCE

ChangeNOW was back in Paris, taking over iconic spaces in the heart of the French capital: 
  • The Grand Palais Ephemere 
  • The Eiffel Tower 
  • The Champ de Mars 
The summit hosted conferences, the solutions expo, start-up pitch sessions, workshops, and networking events. 
 On top of that, visitors enjoyed to the eco-responsible food court, sustainable art exhibition, film festival, changemakers village, and the ChangeNOW by night partner event lineup. 

 The summit conferences were broadcasted LIVE and remain available on our website, accessible to everyone, around the world.

Sustainable event : 

Respect for the environment, waste reduction and social inclusion are cornerstones of the ChangeNOW organisation. We are constantly testing new solutions and making the summit a laboratory for experimenting with responsible events. Learn more about our commitments.

I saw a boiling pot of ideas, actions, and people with an energy that is very contagious. This is such an exciting moment in time!
