Climate partnership between the partner cities Berlin and Buenos Aires
Berlin and Buenos Aires set up a climate partnership in November 2012 as part of the project “50 Municipal Climate Partnerships by 2015.” The climate partnership project is being organized and coordinated by the service agency “Communities in One World” (SKEW)/Engagement Global gGmbH; cooperation takes place under the aegis of the Berliner Energieagentur GmbH (BEA) and the Berlin Senate Chancellery and within the framework of our city partnership. Our Argentinean partners are the directorate-general for international relations and the environmental protection agency of the Ministry of Environment and Public Space of the city of Buenos Aires, “Agencia de Protección Ambiental” (APrA).
Representatives of both cities took part in an international workshop for new climate partnerships between German and Latin American cities, which was held in La Fortuna, Costa Rica, from 26 to 28 November 2012 at the invitation of the service agency “Communities in One World” (SKEW)/Engagement Global gGmbH. Twenty-six cities from nine different countries were represented there. You can find out more about the project here.
