The Dialogue's membership includes around 100 participants from Germany and India - amongst them political, business, academic, media, and other nongovernmental experts and young researchers. Each is involved and interested in bilateral German-Indian cooperation in climate protection and sustainable development.
The German-Indian Sustainability and Climate Change Dialogue had its kick-off meeting at the Freie Universität Berlin on 1 October 2008. The University played host to a workshop entitled “German-Indian Sustainability and Climate Change Dialogue”. It was intended as a network, organised by the Environmental Policy Research Centre (FFU) in cooperation with TERI University in New Delhi.
In addition, the goal of the network is to provide research and higher education that is based on the necessity of practice and to create a platform for an ongoing exchange of experience and knowledge between the three fields promoted.We would like herewith to kindly invite you to attend forthcoming events and contribute to ongoing activities at the interface of academia, politics and business. We plan on addressing the potentials and challenges of bilateral cooperation and will emphasise the need for gaining knowledge as a key for success in improving the conditions on which action can be taken.
