Not Without Us immerses us in the moving, personal journeys of seven grassroots activists from around the world as they prepare and head to Paris to challenge the 21st session of the United Nations Climate Change Conference (COP21) that took place in Paris last December. Building on the momentum of the 2014 People’s Climate March in New York, the Paris mobilizations were slated to be civil societies’ largest and most urgent show of force yet. The deal made there was acclaimed as a historic success, but the film examines the type of agreement that was adopted and the questions that still remain: Can the COP21 Agreement stop climate change? If it can’t, is it up to us?
