In a gesture to support leisure and educational activities for young people in Ghana, the Ecologic Institute Berlin donated footballs to the Juvenile Football Club in Tema, the largest seaport city in Ghana. “Just like in Germany, children and teenagers in Ghana love football.
Ecologic Institute, Berlin and its partners, Ecologic Institute, Washington DC and the Atlantic Council of the United States, were awarded a grant by the Robert Bosch Stiftung for their recently launched Emerging Leaders in Environmental and Energy Policy Network (ELEEP).
Three years after its launch on Earth Day 2008, Ecologic Institute in Washington DC has established a strong presence in the North American environmental policy scene. But, since perceptions and priorities on both sides of the Atlantic are once again beginning to diverge, there is a great deal of important work that lies ahead for the Institute and its transatlantic mission.
On 20-27 April 2009, the Ecologic Institute launches its newly established Washington DC office with a series of events focused on transatlantic environmental policies. Over the course of this week, Ecologic will partner with established civil society and educational institutions to address a range of timely issues, from new challenges for Arctic governance over comparative approaches to green recovery to transatlantic experiences with the promotion of renewable energy sources.
