INFORSE-EUROPE Seminar August 22-26, 2011, Hamburg
Hamburg - "European Green Capital 2011 "
Event on

Date: August 22-26, 2011
Venue: Gut Karlshöhe, Centre for the Environment (Umweltzentrum Karlshöhe), Hamburg, Germany

Local organiser: Ursel Beckmann, INFORSE-Europe Chair, Ecoact, Hamburg

The week went very well with a variety of presentations made from local and international NGOs, the public sector (schools), and the private sector (energy companies).
The working groups and the INFORSE-Europe General Meeting developed some very progressive ideas to lead us through the end of this year in UNFCCC COP17 in Durban and the build up for Rio +20 in July 2012.
The City of Hamburg demonstrated why it had been awarded European Green capital through extensive renewable energy and energy efficiency requirements on all new buildings. Also the transport system seems to be eliminating a lot of road traffic.
