100% Climate Neutrality

4. oktober 2017 kl. 09:00 - 1. januar

Together, We Strive to Make Climate Neutrality a Reality

Climate change is having an increasingly strong impact on the Earth and our future on it. By 2050, the majority of the world’s population will live in cities, which will result in far more global greenhouse gas emissions than ever before. In the German/Danish region, we take this challenge as an opportunity to act and cope with a changing surrounding.

Both Denmark and Germany focus on energy efficiency and renewable energy sources, which requires planning —not only on a city level, but also an industrial level. New areas of investment are appearing, and industry is undergoing a major transformation. To highlight the necessary changes, this years climate neutrality conference will focus on new developments and strategies.

We aim to bring decision makers, researchers and industry representatives together to identify future ways of reaching 100% climate neutrality. Attendees are invited to enter a dialogue about the best solutions for reaching their climate goals on city, regional and national levels.

What is The 100% Neutrality Conference?

The 100% Climate Neutrality conference originates from a collaboration of universities, municipalities and innovation actors in the Danish/German border region. Besides the University of Southern Denmark, which is represented by the Mads Clausen Institute, the Europa-Universität FlensburgHochschule FlensburgProjectZero SønderborgKlimapakt FlensburgCLEAN, and Vækstråd Sønderborg participate.

The conference is organized biannually on odd-numbered years, taking place in Sønderborg, Denmark—a municipality that has thrived for CO2 neutral growth since 2007. It alternates with the 100% Renewable Energy conference in Flensburg, which is organized on even-numbered years.

The first 100% Neutral Conference took place in 2015. The 2017 conference, taking place on October 4-5 at SDU’s Alsion in Sønderborg, will be the second one in Denmark.

This year’s climate neutrality conference will focus on new developments and strategies. Attendees from municipalities, industry and academia are invited to enter a dialogue about the best solutions to reach their climate goals on city, regional and national levels.
