Studieresor till Tyskland om klimatfrågor.

What is the story behind Germany’s climate policy and energy transition? How has the country benefited from its efforts to cut emissions and what have been the main challenges along the way?

We would like to invite journalists from Central and Eastern Europe to take part in one of three individual study tours to Germany. The study tours offer an exclusive insight into Germany’s climate and energy policies, also known as Energiewende, and their impacts. Take advantage of this opportunity to gain exclusive insights into Germany’s “climate policy transformation in action” in the run-up to COP23 in Bonn.

Step behind the scenes to meet the people involved in the country’s switch to a low-carbon economy, widely known as the Energiewende.
Explore pioneering flagship projects and gather information on the opportunities and obstacles the country has experienced so far.
Meet and discuss with journalists from Germany and other European countries current topics of climate and energy politics.

Participation is free of charge. You can choose from the series one or more tours with the following distinct themes: local action, green innovation and structural transformation – in three different areas of Germany.

TOUR 1 – 12 to 14 September 2017
Local climate action – climate policy and energy transition from a bottom-up perspective

TOUR 2 – 10 to 12 October 2017
Green innovations boosting the low-emission economy

TOUR 3 – 3 to 5 November 2017 (just before COP23 in Bonn)
Climate policy and Energy transition as an opportunity for structural change and rural areas

Each focusing on different aspects of German climate policy and the Energiewende, the study tours will offer opportunities to meet key players behind the transition and visit concrete projects. They will provide different perspectives on the benefits and challenges Germany has experienced so far.
