As those who have followed the build up to talks already know, this conference is potentially the most important meeting in history, one that could set the world on the path to climate action that will save the planet.
However most people in the world actually don't know what's happening, why the talks are called "COP21" (Conference of Parties) and why it's so important. So Green.TV has created this short guide to make sure anyone can understand the issues and not be flummoxed by the question: "What is COP21?"
