150 years ago...

World Exhibitions helped accelerate the Industrial Revolution by showcasing state-of-the-art technologies

150 years later...

We are at the beginning of a social and environmental revolution we need to accelerate NOW. This is why we, at ChangeNOW, are building on our previous editions to change scale and create the "World Expo" of innovations for the planet.

WE ARE NOT HERE TO THINK,

WE ARE HERE TO ACT!

 

ChangeNOW is all about concrete actions and innovations: climate change, end of plastic pollution, new forms of agriculture, new models of education, solutions to the refugee crisis, clean energy, sustainable cities, ... and other solutions to our most urgent global issues.

A transformational experience with:

  • 13,500 m² dedicated to solutions 

  • 3 stages for impact entrepreneurs and leaders

  • 5,000 meetings and networking opportunities

  • 50 mayors and international city representatives

  • And a full program of partnering events throughout Paris, by day and by night, dedicated to Positive Impact : a job fair, a film festival, a Sustainable Fashion event, investors dinners... and much more!

The "World Expo" of innovations for the Planet

Jan. 30th  - Feb. 1st 2020

FIRST 2020 SPEAKERS
