Organizational and technical support for colloquia “Making environmental policy fit for transformation: New basic configurations for an applied environmental policy”.

Duration August 2015 – November 2015

Project Manager Dr. René John

Client UBA

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

This project was intended to tie in with the series of lectures on more sustainability “Germany’s Ways into the Future” held a few years ago by UBA. The project’s objective was to send new (networking) impulses, to pick up on innovative ideas, to pick up on 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.
