Regional initiatives for international climate action

The Baden Württemberg Summer Academy is a series of events run by the State of Baden-Württemberg's National Office. This programme of events, which has traditionally considered the broader societal aspects of the energy transition as a multi-generational challenge, is being held for the fifth time in 2017. The aim is to engage in dialogue to stake out various options for action and to explore the future of the energy transition and the fight against climate change. The Baden Württemberg Summer Academy is now an established date in the diaries of energy and climate policy protagonists. Regional initiatives for international climate Action - the key role played by American and German states in limiting climate change will be demonstrated by drawing on the example of the Memorandum of Understanding (Under2MOU) initiated by Baden-Württemberg and California.
