Just weeds - or is it more? Plants in parks, on roadsides, on rooftops and facades contribute to climate change adaptation and biodiversity in Berlin. In the seventh event of the series Biodiversity - Local / Global, Reinhard Schubert of the Senate Department for Urban Development and Environment, Berlin, looked at the possibilities for climate adaptation and the local biodiversity in our capital.

The event took place on 8 April, 2014 from 7.30pm to 9pm in the Urania in Berlin.

Biodiversity - local/global

The term "biodiversity," or biological diversity, is being increasingly brought into a wide array of social and political debates, not least of all because of the numerous species and ecosystems that are under threat and because of the current and future human development options that are being lost due to decreasing biological diversity. What exactly is hidden behind the term, what relationships exist between human well-being and biological diversity, and what can politicians (and you, too!) do to protect them?

In order to address these questions, Ecologic Institute, the Urania Berlin, and the Museum für Naturkunde Berlin have teamed up to present an event series entitled - Biodiversity - local/global - which offers a better understanding of the topic of biological diversity and all of its socially-relevant facets. Renowned experts report from their field of study and take part in open discussions with the audience.

Upcoming events of the Biodiversity - local/global series

This event series will run through June 2014. All events take place in the evening from 7.30pm to 9pm in the Urania in Berlin. Further information can be found in the flyer below. RSVPs are not required.

We look forward to your participation!

An evening event focusing on local climate protection and nature conservation.
