Online conference: Listening, storytelling and matchmaking


Listening, Storytelling, Networking

Let’s work together to achieve the transition to climate-neutral and resilient Alps.


Climate change, climate crisis, climate emergency: How do we find the right words to talk about global warming and to foster sustainability? At the conference, participants can expect inputs on political framing and communication, interactive workshops with practical examples, networking opportunities, inspiring short videos - and all this online!

In these times of home office, closed borders and digitalization, online formats offer good opportunities for exchange. Especially now, it is important to work for more climate protection to ensure that the climate crisis does not disappear from the political and media agenda. Join the discussion and get to know the possibilities offered by online conferences.
