Climate Alliance Board meets in Europe’s Green Capital
Essen is going international: The Climate Alliance Board will meet from 31 May to 1 June in the 2017 European Green Capital. The European city network’s board consists of members from Ecuador and ten European countries. Points of discussion include this year’s International Climate Alliance Conference – taking place in Essen this September, the next UN Climate Summit – being organised in Bonn this November, and the future development of the city network. The board is also set to discuss areas of strategic interest such as building retrofits, sustainable mobility and renewable energies. Board Presidents Tine Heyse from the Belgian City of Ghent and Holger Matthäus of the German City of Rostock invited members to the meeting hosted by board member Simone Raskop, Councillor for the City of Essen.
