Life is short — join IABC France at Point Ephémère on Wednesday, 9 December 2015 | 19.00-21.00

You will only pay whatever you eat or drink at the venue, but please register on Weezevent so we know how many people to expect.

IABC France is offering an exclusive opportunity to visit the “If Not Us Then Who” exhibit and hear an insider’s account of the road to the Paris climate change talks.

Featured speaker: Sophia Cheng, member of IABC UK, will talk about her work on “If Not Us Then Who”, which asks the question “Who is protecting our forests?” A series of stories filmed over the past two years in preparation for COP-21 help us to better understand how the lives of indigenous people around the world are interwoven with the forests they inhabit. The communities are guardians of the forests and dependent on these fragile natural resources for survival and well-being.

Recognised by the Institute of Internal Communications as one of the top ’30 under 30′ in the Internal Communications industry in 2012, Sophia has been the Director of With Many Roots, an agency helping groups and organizations to communicate more effectively since 2014. She is also Communications Manage of Handcrafted Films. Both organizations are supporting the “If Not Us Then Who” project.
