    Climate neutrality by 2035? What should be the contribution of the City of Dresden as a municipality and TU Dresden as an educational institution and the largest employer in the city?

    Climate change is one of the most acute and significant challenges of our time. In its latest report, the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) states that the critical global warming mark of 1.5 degrees will already be reached in around ten years, several years earlier than previously forecasted. Institutions, local authorities, and politicians must finally act to achieve the ambitious goal of being climate neutral by 2035.

    Various actors from TU Dresden, the city, and the urban society will have their say in a panel discussion to answer the question: Can we achieve climate neutrality by 2035? What can and should we do to achieve this goal? Which important role do the City of Dresden and TU Dresden play in this?

    All interested citizens are invited to participate and also to ask questions. The event is free-of-charge.

    Prof. Roswitha Böhm, Vice-Rector University Culture at TU Dresden, will inaugurate the event. Cornelius Pollmer will be the presenter.
