New Energy for Climate Action in Berlin?


The recent decisions by the Constitutional Court and the German government on national climate legislation have brought new wind to the climate debate. But what does this mean for Berlin? Are the new targets suitable for transfer to the capital? Is the level of ambition sufficient to limit CO2 emissions "in line with Paris requirements" and allow Berlin to shoulder its fair share of the 1.5 degree target? And which areas of improvement do Berlin's politicians have to tackle now in order to set the course towards a climate-neutral Berlin 2045 without burdening the city's most disadvantaged residents in particular?

In the first edition of Wandelwecker, our morning impulse for a social and ecological metropolis, we discussed these questions together with two proven experts on energy and climate policy in Berlin and you.

More ambitious climate targets at the federal level are also putting pressure on the German capital. We discuss the areas of improvement for a climate-neutral Berlin 2045.
