Climate change is one of the major challenges of the 21st century, presenting risks to international prosperity and security. Securing international action in response is a key foreign policy challenge.
From 19 June to 2 July 2017, embassies around the world celebrated Climate Diplomacy Week, with events taking place to highlight climate action in the EU and beyond. Conferences, citizens’ debates, exhibitions, films and social media activities aimed to encourage informed debate on post-Paris climate diplomacy. Find the highlights of the Climate Diplomacy Week 2017 here.
The first German-UK-French Climate Diplomacy Day was held on 9 September 2014. Events held that day in German, British and French missions in over 30 countries highlighted the importance of our climate diplomacy partnership, showcased successful climate projects, and emphasised the need for ongoing climate action. The Climate Diplomacy Day has been continued since then.Examples from activities organized in 2016 are the exchange organized by the German Federal Foreign Office, the activities of the German embassy in Seoul and the EU delegation in Moscow.
