No, but there are various ways to participate to COP21:
- Participate to events organized by civil society: they are opened to everyone, and you can join them whether or not you participate to COY11;
- Be present in the official “blue zone” where the COP21 takes place: for that, you need an official accreditation issued by the UNFCCC, that can be obtained by certain NGOs. COY11 organizers cannot help you to obtain an accreditation.
