WORLD | CLIMATE | CHANGEDecember 2 and 3, 2021

Extreme weather events show the progressing climate change. In Afghanistan, nation building according to our values of sustainable development is failing. The Corona pandemic has not been overcome. A new German government is stepping up to create the political framework for solutions. At the 14th German Sustainability Day, the shapers of transformation meet live and virtually in Düsseldorf. With the best minds and concepts from business, communities, research and politics, the DNT shows how change can succeed faster.
