Rising global energy needs remain a major challenge, with cities and regions being central players in making energy more secure, clean and sustainable. To transform from a linear to a circular economy there is a growing need to take advantage of renewable resources, including energy.

It will build on the success of previous conferences and will showcase practical and innovative examples of how to reduce energy and resource use, and make ideal use of energy sources and other resources in the region.

About The City of Freiburg, the City of Basel and ICLEI Europe

Basel is a city on the Rhine River in northwest Switzerland, close to the country’s borders with France and Germany. It is with some justification that Freiburg regards itself as one of the birthplaces of the environmental movement. Freiburg‘s sustainability process began as far back as the 1970s with the successful action against the Wyhl nuclear power plant, one of the founding myths of the alternative-green movement. ICLEI – local governments for sustainability is connecting leaders in Europe. The ICLEI European Secretariat engages, connects and represents its more than 100 members to strive to create sustainable cities.
