Work Programme

In addition to its domestic activities, GLOBE Germany is a central actor in the GLOBE community in Europe, as a reflection of the key role of Germany as an EU Member State. GLOBE Germany hosted the annual European region GLOBE Strategy Conference in November 2011, which focused on the crossroads of Europe's low-carbon energy policy after Fukushima, as well as a high-level parliamentary dinner debate at the German Parliamentary Society on the ongoing reform of the EU's Common Fisheries Policy in April 2012.

In 2013 it hosted the 1st GLOBE Natural Capital Summit, with legislators from over 20 countries organised under the GLOBE Natural Capital Initiative.

In 2014, it hosted a workshop in the Bundestag to review progress made in the protection of the Baltic Sea. The workshop “Challenge Baltic Sea: Marine Environmental Protection” was co-chaired by Andreas Jung MdB, GLOBE Germany President, and by Bärbel Höhn MdB, President of the Environment Committee of the Bundestag. The session was attended by GLOBE Germany members and legislators from coastal constituencies from all parties.
