During the week about 50 NRO multipliers as well as local authorities, architects and energy experts from Western and Eastern Europe, the Caucasus and Central Asia discussed German and international energy- and climate politics, the use of renewable energy (bio-energy and wind energy, water power and Solarthermie) alongside subjects as ecological scenery and forestry. Participants learned about concrete climate protection in Munich and its surroundings, and talked about their own experiences at home.
For WECF this interlinking is especially important between the local level and the international political level to create access to renewable energy for other countries and to speed up the fight against poverty by sustainable development. After the training, WECFand training participants travelled further to Bonn to join the UNFCCC Climate Change Conference, where a WECF Side Event „Nuclear energy: Obstacle for actual climate protection“ took place where examples were shown of human rights abuses by nuclear waste and uranium mines in the CIS countries is planned. WECF will observe the whole negotiations, give input and present decentralised, sustainable solutions.
