The Ministry for the Environment, Climate and Energy Management Baden-Württemberg, the City of Ulm and the Danube Office Ulm/Neu-Ulm cordially jointly host the Municipal Climate Congress on Thursday and Friday, 20th & 21st May 2021.
This time, the Municipal Climate Congress will take place as a virtual event. This also offers interested parties from more distant areas, such as the Danube region, the opportunity to participate in the congress. The districts, cities and municipalities play a key role in climate protection and in adapting to the unavoidable consequences of climate change. The Municipal Climate Congress offers them an ideal platform to learn about new ideas and projects and to disseminate them further.
The Municipal Climate Congress is supported by Priority Area 2 “Energy”, Priority Area 8 “Competitiveness” and Priority Area 10 “Institutional Capacity and Cooperation”.
You can still register until 14th of May 2021. You can access the registration form at https://www.kea-bw.de/kommunaler-klimaschutz/default-1c9ff13143-1
