In the run up of the 16th Conference of the Parties (COP 16) in November and December 2010 in Cancún/Mexico, the online-climate conference website features a new video podcast in which the Parliamentary State Secretary Katherina Reiche, Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety in Germany, encourages the worldwide participants to seize the innovative online-climate conference CLIMATE 2010 (www.climate2010.net) for networking, discussing newest findings in climate research and for developing sustainable solutions.
The key theme of this years world-wide CO2-friendly virtual conference is the sustainable management of water resources, a crucial theme especially for those world regions which will in future be most affected by climate change. In her video podcast the Parliamentary State Secretary stated that it is necessary for each and every one of us to take responsibility for our actions. She adds: We are therefore particularly pleased that you [the participants] are our guest at this online-conference and I wish us all a creative and constructive exchange. The worldwide and free of charge online-conference CLIMATE 2010 is organized for the third time after 2008 and 2009.
This year the Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety of the Federal Republic of Germany, Dr. Norbert Roettgen, took over the patronage.
