The general topic “Globale Anregungen für lokale Energieeffizienz” (Global Inspiration for Local Energy Efficiency), will be discussed in the plenary throughout the morning and during three different workshop sessions in the afternoon.
We are happy to announce that a number of well-known experts will join us, including Harry Lehmann, German Federal Environment Agency, Martin Faulstich, President of the German Council of Environmental Advisors, Fredy Brunner, City Councillor, St. Gallen, Helga Weisz, Chair, Research Domain IV Transdisciplinary Concepts and Methods, Potsdam Institut für Klimafolgenforschung (PIK), Hubert Rhomberg, CEO Rhomberg AG, Willi Sieber, Austrian Ökologie Institut, and Carol Muggli, Projectleader myclimate.

At the end of the afternoon, all participants will be invited to gather in the plenary hall to listen to the workshop summaries and actively take part in the panel discussion with different protagonists of the day. The congress will be held in German.
