Open press briefing and discussion with Dr. Nina Scheer and representative of Eurosolar:

"100% now: How the complete change to renewable energies can be achieved"

Tuesday, 14 June, 15:30-16:30 (3:30-4:30 pm) at the offices of EUROSOLAR, Kaiser-Friedrich-Straße 11, 53113 Bonn

Before the Fukushima disaster confirmed what the anti-nuclear movement has said for over three decades, politician and solar advocate Hermann Scheer (1944-2010) explained how the complete switch to renewable energy could be realized quickly. In his last book, "Der Energethische Imperativ", now being translated into English, the then-president of EUROSOLAR looked at concepts and proposals for the shift away from fossil and nuclear energy and their prospects of success… declaring that: "the switch to renewable energy (is) achievable worldwide, if we step up to mobilize our full strength to this end, and that it can be done within a quarter-century, in some regions and countries earlier already." Carrying on his important work are Eurosolar and his daughter, Dr. Nina Scheer, managing director of UnternehmensGruen , and board member of the Hermann Scheer Foundation.

Before her presentation at a side event at the UN Climate Change Conference Tuesday evening, 8 pm (Announcement here), Nina Scheer will speak about her father’s work – so relevant right now – and answer questions from the press (in German and English).
