Informational Visitors Program on Climate Protection and Renewable Energy
This visitor programme on climate and renewable energy took place in Berlin, Magdeburg and Hamburg in cooperation with the German Foreign Office. The programme, designed and organised by Ecologic Institute, was aimed at Latin American political decision-makers from the national, regional and community levels as well as interested journalists. Key to the programme were discussions with experts from the German Ministries of the Environment and Economy and the Foreign Office, as well as think tanks and NGOs. Excursions to companies in the renewable energy field (biogas, solar and wind energy) and Hamburg’s role as Europe’s 2011 environment capital constituted a substantial element of the trip.
