PhotoSparks is a weekly feature from YourStory, with photographs that celebrate the spirit of creativity and innovation. In this photo essay, we feature some of the innovative exhibits at the United Nations’ Climate Change Summit 2016 in Marrakech, Morocco!

In the earlier 105 posts, we brought you a wide range of creative photographs from an art fair, world music festival, painting fair, telecom expo, art museum, mobile showcase, math museum, social hackathon, bookstore, co-working space, sensorium, international design week, flower show, outdoor ads, startup roadshow, computer museum, startup T-shirts, business cards, art therapy, startup festival, Diwali rangoli, Vesak, jazz festival, modern art gallery, ecopreneurs, painter-poets, health activists, eNGOs and digital innovators.

My travels this month brought me to magical Marrekech for panel discussions and keynotes at two events, Africa4Tech 2016 and the ‘COP22’ Climate Change Summit. In this photo essay, we feature innovators from around the world creating products and services that increase awareness about global warming and promote environmentally sustainable practices.

Bio-fuels, electric vehicles, shared vehicles, organic products, activist movements, volunteer networks, educational kits, fog water, upcycled furniture, smart utilities, green policy apps, sustainable tourism, energy-less stoves – the 'Green Zone' at COP22 has them all! We wish these innovators all the best in their mission to create a prosperous but equitable and greener world.
