Pressetermin von Clean Energy Wire
The media study tour will take a deep dive into the fascinating microcosm of environmental issues, political dynamics and economic challenges.
In Germany, the birthplace of the automobile, three iconic carmakers, BMW, Daimler, and VW, are facing their greatest challenge ever: the mobility revolution to create a green transport future. Tarnished by the scandal over VW’s manipulation of emissions tests, and facing new and powerful competitors in Google, Tesla, Apple, and Uber, German carmakers have awoken late to the age of decarbonisation, self-driving vehicles, and car sharing.
Against this background, CLEW are inviting journalists to join us on a tour of Stuttgart. The hometown of both Daimler and Porsche, Stuttgart is an ideal place to study practically every aspect of what makes climate policy, local transport, pollution problems and global technological trends such a potent blend:
In top-level meetings with policy-makers, the car industry and analysts, CLEW will ask which policy and regulatory framework the transport sector needs as it moves towards decarbonisation. Various on-site visits will give participants insights into the car industry, new technologies and the realities of today’s transport in one of Germany’s most-polluted cities.
Who can take part?
The media workshop is open to European journalists with a professional background in transport, environmental or climate policy journalism.
