History of Climate Talk

Climate Talk was founded in 2004 by Ecologic Institute and the law firm Baker & McKenzie. Its conception and organisation were first handled by Dr. Camilla Bausch (Ecologic Institute), Hannes Schloemann, and Dr. Peter Ebsen (Baker&McKenzie). However, when Hannes Schloemann and Peter Ebsen moved to Switzerland and England, respectively, to pursue further career opportunities, Climate Talk had the pleasure of engaging Dr. Hans-Joachim Ziesing of the German Institute for Economic Research (DIW) as their successor in the organisation team. After Dr. Ziesing left the DIW and the Climate Talk's organising team on his 65th Birthday, the circle of directors profited greatly from the addition of Priv. Doz. Dr. Lutz Mez of the Environmental Policy Research Centre (FFU). In 2007, Camilla Bausch spent a year in the US, during which time Climate Talk was put on hold. After her return, Climate Talk took a stronger international focus than before. From then on, Camilla Bausch led Climate Talk together with her colleague Benjamin Görlach and the Stiftung Wissenschaft und Politik (German Institute for International and Security Affairs - SWP), represented by Dr. Susanne Dröge. Gesa Homann (Ecologic Institute) also collaborates on the work done within Climate Talk.
