Paris: Callout for medics during COP21

A few people in Paris are working on making sure there will be a medic space during the COP21, and on facilitating communication amongst medic teams and with the groups who will be present at the different actions.

The general idea is to be able to coordinate as well as possible between different teams present according to affinity, experience, language… some friends are also lending us a place to be used as a medic space during COP21.

However, we do not know how many people we can rely on!

We would wish to have an idea of how many “medics” can be present during the two weeks, or parts of these two weeks. We’re ideally looking for people who already have some kind of experience of being a “street medic” or with first aid skills (we trust you to judge your experience level and limits).

For those of you who wish to join us you can contact us at the email below so we can start organizing.
Please tell us what languages you or your affinity group speak, if you can bring medic stuff with  you, how long you are thinking of staying… Please send us your ideas, and spread this call-out within your own networks.

Cheers, see you soon ;)
