Wie gestalten wir Berlin klimaneutral?

Together with the Zentral- und Landesbibliothek Berlin (ZLB), we are pleased to invite you to a panel discussion on April 10, 2024 at 6:30 p.m. in the Amerika-Gedenkbibliothek on the topic „How can we make Berlin climate-neutral?“.

75 percent of EU citizens live in urban areas. These consume more than 65 percent of the world’s energy and are therefore responsible for more than 70 percent of CO2 emissions. Projects already exist to combat air and environmental pollution in urban areas; for example, energy resources are increasingly coming from „green“ and more sustainable sources. The EU’s Horizon Europe research program, in which 100 European cities are pioneering climate neutrality strategies, is also one of these projects. This project facilitates collaborations, strengthens scientific knowledge and supports the creation and dissemination of knowledge and technologies in Europe and the United Nations. We are pleased to welcome Ulrike Linnig from EIT Climate-KIC, Britta Behrendt, State Secretary for Climate Protection and Environment and a representative of BürgerBegehren Klimaschutz e.V. on Wednesday, April 10 at 6:30 pm in the Amerika-Gedenkbibliothek.

Together with you, Britta Behrendt and Ulrike Linnig, we want to discuss the following and other questions: What can Berlin learn from existing projects such as Horizon Europe’s? How can urban development, transportation and energy supply be rethought in the districts? How can we as individuals but also as an urban community reduce our ecological footprint? How can we involve as many people as possible from all walks of life and find measures that work for everyone? What steps do we need to take to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and at the same time improve the quality of life of our citizens? How can we use innovative technologies and policies to accelerate the transition to sustainable energy and mobility?

We look forward to your participation. We ask for a binding online registration by 09.04.2024.
