It’s a place that makes you happy. It’s in Europe. In this special paradise, the nature is unique, precious; it is the place that means the most to you.  You would hate to see it disappear…

A beachfront, a forest, a piece of land, a small city garden, a snowy peak. A landscape. The land of your ancestors, or a place that only belongs to you, one of your own discoveries.

Climate change could destroy this place. You know what we are talking about: rising seas, torrential rains, heat waves. Plants and animals/ Fauna and flora may have already disappeared/are already missing.

Film this place, fight for it, and share your experience! Participate to a documentary created by 47 European countries! It will air on television during the 21st UN climate conference (COP21) that will take place in Paris at the end of 2015.

If no action is taken, global warming could reach 6 degrees by 2100.
