„Nachhaltigkeit muss den Menschen normal vorkommen“

1. Transformationskonferenz 2016 zur Nachhaltigkeitswende

Energie, Klima, Umwelt, Armut, Gleichberechtigung – das sind nur einige der Themen der Agenda für Nachhaltige Entwicklung, kurz Agenda 2030. Um die große Transformation hin zu einem nachhaltigen Leben zu bewältigen, komme es vor allem auf eines an: auf jeden Einzelnen. Darin waren sich der Kommunikationsexperte Ed Gillespie, der Wirtschaftsvertreter Julian Matthes und der Umweltaktivist Jörg Sommer einig. Auch in der internationalen Entwicklungszusammenarbeit müsse in die Menschen investiert werden, damit jeder eine Perspektive bekomme.



The workshop, organized by EKLA-KAS and the Gobernabilidad Perú Organization, was attended by specialists from Latin America and representatives of various organizations devoted to the subject, who after two days of exhibitions and exchange of views were able to consolidate the main ideas and conclusions in the document attached to this report.



The workshop "Effects of Biodiversity Strategies and Plans in the Andean region" took place with the participation of representatives from the Peruvian Society for Environmental Law and biodiversity specialists from Brazil, Bolivia, and Colombia. The conclusions drawn from this workshop are the cornerstone for carrying out a research for publication that contributes to the debate and the decisions taken at the Conference of the Parties to the Convention on Biological Diversity later this year (Cancun, Mexico, December 2016) and the subsequent policies and strategies in Latin America.
