The International Convention of Environment Laureates is the flagship event of the European Environment Foundation. The congress, which will take place in Basel (Schweiz) from 2021, brings together around 100 winners of environmental awards and prizes from all over the world to make contacts and work together. Since its introduction in 2012 to 2018, the convention was held in Freiburg im Breisgau (Germany). The European Environment Foundation was looking for a new partner. She found it with sun21 energy & resources, a non-profit organization in Basel (Switzerland). From 2021, sun21 will hold the convention every two years in Basel. The convention will continue to be developed and refined in order to optimize the exchange of ideas and experiences and to respond to the needs and wishes of the participants.
