Sønderborg hosts international climate conference with big names
The international 100% Climate Neutrality Conference will be held on 26 and 27 September at Alsion in Sønderborg. Here you will have the opportunity to meet Germany's Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action and vice-chancellor, Robert Habeck, world-leading climate researcher and prorector at SDU, Sebastian Mernild and former Chairman of Danfoss, Jørgen Mads Clausen.
The heatwave has been ravaging Europe for months, leaving major rivers such as the Rhine with critically low water levels. At the same time, high temperatures have led to severe forest fires in the south of the continent. According to the European Drought Observatory, as much as 45% of the continent is affected by drought.
So we've got a taste of what global temperature rises mean. And it is clearer than ever that climate challenges require action at national and international level, so that cooperation and shared ownership on both challenges and solutions can accelerate the necessary climate action.
The climate conference 100% Climate Neutrality, which will take place at Alsion on 26 and 27 September, hits spot-on on these issues. This is a solution-oriented conference that - as the name suggests - focuses on how to achieve 100% CO2 neutrality.
After a year off in 2020 and an online version in 2021 due to Covid-19, the conference is now back in physical form. It will be held in Sønderborg for the fifth time.
At the conference you will meet climate frontrunners, policy makers and best practice examples. You'll meet people who are making a difference to the border region, Europe and the world when it comes to climate action.
The conference will include panel discussions with strong voices in the climate debate, such as Germany’s Federal Minister for Economic Affairs and Climate Action and vice-chancellor, Robert Habeck, world-leading climate researcher and prorector at SDU, Sebastian Mernild, and former Chairman of Danfoss, Jørgen Mads Clausen.
This year's conference will focus on new technologies, geoengineering, green entrepreneurship, the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and how we translate these issues into strategies and political action. There will also be a particular focus on areas where the border region has specific strengths, such as energy efficiency and new technologies within solar energy.
