In the face of the paltry ambitious global implementation of the Paris Agreement Japan and Germany, as leading industrialised nations, have a special responsibility to contribute towards a global decarbonisation. The vivid – and sometimes also controversial dialogue – on ways and means for the energy transition is more important than ever.
Within the framework of the "German-Japanese Energy Transition Council" (GJETC) experts from Germany and Japan have been working on analysing the challenges of the energy transition in Germany and Japan in the past two years in order to develop policy advice how the energy transition can accelerated in both countries by collaborative learning.
The mutual recommendations for the different stakeholders from politics, industry and civil society will be presented and discussed by Prof. Dr. Peter Hennicke (Senior Scientist at the Wuppertal Institute and German Co-Chair GJETC Council) and Prof. Jun Arima (Japanese GJETC Council) in a public Outreach event together with the question of the role of such a form of bi-national cooperation in the international context.
The outreach event "The Importance of International Cooperation under Disruptive Changes" will take place on Friday, 20 April 2018 from 14 to 16 o'clock in the Press and Visitor Centre of the Federal Government in Berlin. The event will be simultaneously translated into German and Japanese. The attendance of the event is free of charge and registration is requested by 17 April 2018. Please note, that the number of participants is limited. Further information can be found under the links below.
