Organizational and technical support for colloquia “Making Environmental Policy Fit for Transformation: New Basic Configurations for Applied Environmental Policy”.

Duration August 2015 – November 2015

Project manager Dr. René John

Client UBA

Cooperation partner

The aim of the UBA colloquia was to support the exchange of experience and networking of ideas between public institutions, scientific institutions involved in applied sustainability and transformation research, and also within the Federal Environment Agency.

This project was intended to follow on from the series of lectures on greater sustainability “Germany’s Paths to the Future” held by UBA a few years ago. The substantive objective of the project was to send out new (networking) impulses, to take up innovative ideas, to address dynamics that may lie beyond conventional environmental policy, to shed light on the field of transformation research, and to discuss and, if possible, further develop new basic configurations for applied environmental policy.

September 2019 – June 2022

The project takes up the approach stated in the National Program for Sustainable Consumption (NPNK) of understanding and promoting sustainable nutrition as a concept that is equally health-promoting and ecological.

October 2022 – February 2023

The production and consumption of food in Germany is associated with environmental problems, especially with regard to intensive animal husbandry for food production. Health problems are also associated with the consumption of animal products, such as cardiovascular diseases and diabetes. From the perspective of a more sustainable diet, a ‘Dietary Shift’ is therefore urgently needed (WBAE 2020). Against this background, the DUH project “Positive Campaign to Strengthen Plant-Based Dietary Environments” aims to contribute to reducing the animal share in the diet to a level that is compatible with humans, animals and the environment (One Health approach).
