Public Events

Main content

Dialogue between scientists and societal decision makers in politics, administration and civil society constitutes an important element to the path towards a more sustainable development. For this purpose, CCES, on the one hand, organized public events where stakeholders and scientists came together. On the other hand, CCES fostered the dissemination and adoption of sustainability know-how in the public administration and industry.

Events for a broader audience were of central importance for CCES to disseminate new scientific findings of sustainability research and discussing the consequence for society and decision-makers.
