Sustainable Consumption

and Production Patterns

National Dialogue on the Follow-up of the World Summit on Sustainable Development

16 - 17 February 2004, Berlin



Conference Summary (138 KB)

The issue of "Sustainable Consumption and Production Patterns" has gained a new impetus in international debates as a result of the World Summit on Sustainable Development in Johannesburg in 2002. The states now face the challenge of fleshing out the "10-Year-Framework of Programmes" by integrating programme content at their respective national levels.

Germany can refer to a multitude of approaches and initiatives to promote sustainable development. Nevertheless, new ideas are necessary in order to implement sustainable consumption and production patterns.

Against this background, the German Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety and the Federal Environmental Agency are hosting the conference "Sustainable Consumption- and Production Patterns  - National Dialogue on the Follow-up of the World Summit for Sustainable Development" in Berlin which aims at developing perspectives and new impetus for the promotion of sustainable consumption and production patterns.

The conference language is German.

The participation in the conference is free.

More information on the conference is available on the German website only.
