Climate Protection Now!

Greencity e.V.

Deadline: 12/21/2017

Private households produce 30 % of Germany’s greenhouse gas emission. Yet, most of the people still rely on supranational climate protection agreements when it comes to tackling today’s climate challenges. Additionally, the technological advances create the impression that third parties will swiftly put that matter to rest. Green City believes that every one of us has to make daily decisions that are either in compliance with, or in contradiction to international objectives on climate control. Unfortunately, too many people lack the awareness or the motivation to become conscious residents who engage in climate friendly action. That is exactly why Green City e.V. and Impact Hub Munich are looking for solution providers with innovative ideas to encourage the broader public to proactively combat climate change and its impact.
