Croatian activists attend Paris protests against climate changes

Activists of Green Action, a leading non-governmental organisation for environmental protection in Croatia, arrived in Paris on Thursday to join several thousand environmental activists from around the world on the occasion of the end of the two-week climate summit, COP 21, and join them in protests by which they will demand a more determined fight against climate changes.

Green Action president Bernard Ivcic told Hina that some 15 representatives of Green Action and their partners organisations from Croatia, Bosnia and Herzegovina and Serbia would take part in several public protests in Paris.

COP 21 - the 21st session of the Conference of the Parties - sees more than 190 nations gather in Paris to discuss a possible new global agreement on climate change, aimed at reducing greenhouse gas emissions to avoid the threat of dangerous warming due to human activities. The conference started on November 30. Croatia was represented by Prime Minister Zoran Milanovic.
