More than 100 leading players are taking part in over 100 events underway since Sunday September 25th-October 2nd, 2016 as part of the 8th Hamburg Climate Week. Prof. Dr. Mojib Latif, patron of the event, stressed: “Civil society must exert pressure to ensure something happens on a political level. Sustainable living is a gain, not an abandonment for all of us. In that respect, the Hamburg Climate Week is a chance for the entire population.”
Events in downtown Hamburg and HafenCity
Across central Hamburg and HafenCity, players from commerce, science and society are revealing how the U.N.‘s global sustainability objectives can be achieved. Frank Schweikertt, a spokesman for the advisory council to the climate week, noted: “Since the beginning of the year, Hamburg must also turn sustainability goals adopted by the United Nations into concrete action.” The agenda of the Hamburg Climate Week includes speeches and podium events, an extensive education programme for school classes, cultural highlights and themed parks.
