"Alle fürs Klima" - IREES employees active in climate demo

25.09.2019

Several thousand people demonstrated for the climate in Karlsruhe on 20.09.2019

On Friday, 20.09.2019, 27 Karlsruhe associations and organisations called for the third global climate demo under the slogan "Alle fürs Klima". IREES felt addressed by this call. The institute works intensively on climate protection solutions in individual topic areas, so it was a consistent decision for all employees to take part in the climate demo. IREES is thus continuing its civil society commitment to better environmental protection. The Institute was already active in this direction in 2015 and was one of the organisers of the Climate March on 29 November 2015 in Karlsruhe.

Demonstrations took place worldwide. In more than 575 cities in Germany alone, people of all ages went out on the streets to protest against the ongoing destruction of the climate and to comply with the Paris Agreement. Meanwhile, the Climate Cabinet met in Berlin and one of the most important UN summits of the year was prepared in New York. Churches in Karlsruhe also supported the large-scale demonstration "Alle fürs Klima". For example, the Evangelische Stadtkirche (Protestant city church) on the market square set its clock at 11:55 a.m. on this day under the motto "It's five to twelve for the climate".

In Karlsruhe a whole action week for the climatic protection had already begun on Thursday.
