METREX Hamburg Conference on Climate Change

Stopping the ongoing Climate Change is one of the greatest challenges of our time. The big cities and metropolitan regions will have to adapt and take effective measures against the increasing warming up of the atmosphere.

Therefore the Network of European Metropolitan Regions METREX and the Metropolitan Region of Hamburg organised a conference on cooperation in the field of climate change.

The METREX Hamburg Conference on Climate Change had the following goals:

- adoption of a joint declaration of European metropolitan regions on climate change,
- encouraging cooperation and exchange among big cities and European metropolitan regions on best practice, triggering off effective strategies and projects,
- documentation and information on best practice as well as
- starting a transatlantic dialogue on climate change among metropolitan and city regions in Europe and the U.S.

Big cities and metropolitan regions were being offered the opportunity to present their best practice during the conference (Power Point presentation, exhibition) and to contribute towards the planned best practice documentation. Please refer to the conference programme for details.

As follow-up to the METREX Hamburg Conference on Climate Change, the Northern Virginia Regional Commission and METREX will invite to a meeting in Greater Washington, which is to take place 9-12 April 2008.
