The event recognises the efforts of different aspects of society to raise awareness and contribute to environmental sectors such as climate protection, resource conservation, circular economy, and regional value creation.

Climate protection, resource conservation, circular economy, regional value creation – many SMEKUL topics rely on initiative and cooperation from all parts of society. In 2020, SMEKUL awarded the first eku Future Prize to support existing local and regional engagement in these topics, and publicly acknowledge the commitment of these communities to the environment.
To conclude the first round of the eku Future Prize, and to kick off the second, the Minister of State, Wolfram Günther invites experts from across civil society, science, and administrative sectors to the C3 Carlowitz Congresscentrum Chemnitz.
The purpose of this event is to honour the winners of the eku Future Prize 2020, and to support initiative, the exchange of experience, and mutual networking to make rapid progress towards a sustainable future, and to encourage others to learn from these endeavours.
