The city Bremerhaven changes its face. Bremerhaven has an outstanding expertise in climate and resource protection. The maritime city is the center of the German offshore wind energy industry. With the Alfred-Wegener-Institute for Polar and Marine Research, the Fraunhofer-Institute for Wind Energy and Energy System Technology and the University of Bremerhaven, the city is a hub in climate and energy research in Germany. The Climate House Bremerhaven 8° East is a globally unique, scientific exhibition space that imparts the complex topics climate and climate change in a vivid and tangible way.
The city council assembly consequently decided on September 28 in 2007 to further develop the maritime network in the field of climate research as an independent focus.
The Alfred-Wegener-Institute accompanied this process since the beginning and played a leading role by developing the concept study ‘Klimastadt Bremerhaven’.
To reach the climate protection goals, the ‘Klimastadt Bremerhaven’ initiated different working groups.
They are responsible for realizing various projects in order to provide a sustainable cityscape. The AWI contributes in two of these working groups: Citizen and education (Bürgerinnen und Bildung) and economics and science (Wirtschaft/Wissenschaft).
