With the urban master plan for active climate policy, Bremerhaven has declared climate protection to be a task of general public interest. What is more, in view of the city’s role as a centre for climate research and the production of wind turbines for both the onshore and offshore sector, Bremerhaven is claiming the title of “Climate City”. For this reason, a project team with an impressive line-up has drawn up the concept “Climate City Bremerhaven” for the city administration (Magistrat).
Model for future course
Climate City Bremerhaven is intended to serve as a guide for the future actions of the city, its businesses and its citizens. To achieve the climate protection targets, Climate City Bremerhaven has created workgroups. These are responsible for individual and joint projects and will help to achieve a uniformly sustainable urban landscape.
Make the climate city more visible
At the same time, the aim is to get existing “climate beacons” (AWI, Klimahaus, industry ...) to network more intensively and to stimulate new cooperative ventures. Advances made on the way towards a low-emission “Climate City Bremerhaven” are to be made visible, documented and conveyed in a transparent manner to citizens, to generate the motivation for a change in behaviour.
