I am delighted and honored to have been appointed patron of the International Convention of Environmental Laureates, which convenes from 14 – 17 March 2013 in Freiburg. The convention aims to bring together high-caliber environmental laureates to support and drive forward sustainable policies in Europe.
Faced with the increasing number of sometimes severe crises taking Europe and the world by surprise, it is imperative that we join forces and work together. A strategic approach is needed here so that we can negotiate a long-term solution to escape this myriad of crises and actively pursue sustainability to protect our environment. With the energy revolution, Germany has met this huge challenge head on. Other countries, particularly in Europe, are keen to see whether we succeed.
Science, business, politics and society as a whole must all come together to make this goal a reality. Only by joining forces can we create a bright future for generations to come. The International Convention of Environmental Laureates is an excellent platform in this respect, boasting participants from an array of disciplines and an attractive program.
