Carl-A. Fechner at the Hamburg Climate Week 2020

One city, 27 venues and 250 events on the topics of climate and environmental protection and social issues – united in the 12th Hamburg Climate Week. This year director Carl-A. Fechner attended this event personally again.

As the moderator of the discussion panel „Where to go with the Moorburg coal-fired power plant?“ he spoke with the SPD member of the German parliament Nina Scheer and Prof. Hartmut Graßl about the future of coal in Germany, the German energy turnaround and necessary, trend-setting political tools.

Since 2009, the Hamburg Climate Week has been organizing a multifaceted social dialogue on climate protection and the 17 Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations with players from business, politics and society. With several thousand visitors, the Hamburg Climate Week, which is largely organized on a voluntary basis, is the largest climate communication event in Europe, according to the participating United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP).

We congratulate the initiators of the Hamburg Climate Week on having been able to put together such a forward-looking event even in this unusual year of 2020. And one thing is already certain: We will see you again next year in Hamburg!
