The Transatlantic Climate Bridge initiative was launched in 2008 by the German Ministry of Environment and the German Federal Foreign Office. It serves as a platform for dialogue on climate and energy with actors in the United States and Canada. The initiative aims to foster on-going transatlantic cooperation and partnerships in the climate and energy arena on all levels, to highlight common solutions, to support exchange of experiences and to raise awareness of the economic advantages of ambitious climate policy. To achieve these goals, ifok and its U.S. parent company, Cadmus, have been contracted to design and implement a series of formats for dialogue in the United States and Canada. This includes: conferences on climate and innovation; town hall meetings on carbon pricing; “mobility of the future” and the sustainable transformation of cities; and delegation exchange tours on structural transitions in fossil-fuel dependent regions.
- Content preparation, event design and implementation for two conferences on “climate and innovation” – one in Pittsburgh, PA, US and one in Canada
- Content preparation, event design and implementation of a series of town hall meetings on diverse climate action topics
- Content preparation, coordination and the implementation of two delegation exchange tours (one in Canada, one in the US) on climate protection and structural transition
