One of the biggest projects taking place during the summit is the Artists 4 Paris initiative, which includes Naziha Mestou illuminating the Eiffel Tower with virtual trees as part of her 1 Heart 1 Tree project. For every virtual tree donated, a real tree will be planted. Check out more here.

As official protests have been banned, last weekend around 20 000 pairs of shoes were placed in the Place de la République in a symbolic silent march led by Avaaz. The famous feet of Marion Cotillard and Pope Francis have been labelled in the march as they sent their shoes to take part in the march.

UK street-art group Brandalism have placed satirical adverts in around 600 advertising spaces. The design group Barnbrook created mock adverts for Volkswagen, whilst NY group Not An Alternative sent a message to the Louvre to not associate with sponsors who do not act environmentally responsible.
