A Photographic Journey: COP22 Week One

It has been a crazy and fun week here in Morocco, as the COP 22 (Conference of the Parties) starts, all kinds of people have arrived and lots of activities have been going on. We have participated in many and have seen an amazing amount of cool and innovative things. We are all feeling inspired and motivated to share our knowledge and experiences. Keep scrolling for a peek into our first week at the COP 22 in Marrakech, Morocco.
