01: Economic Factor and Resource of the Future: Environment and Energy

-
Hauptschule
Breakout / Working Group
German and English language

Due to their size and the fast economic growth, China and India have a high need for resources and rapidly increasing energy consumption. Thus, they put pressure on the environment, with local and global consequences. Sustainable development is based on a strong interconnection between economy and environment. Therefore, the challenge of the future is the question how we can combine perspectives of economic growth with environmental issues and the availability of resources. Which effects on the global markets has the growing need for resources by China and India? How can be developed common perspectives for resource security and competitiveness? Which challenges have to be faced by an adequate environmental planning? What are the chances for European environmental technologies? How will develop the international resource and energy markets? What are the chances and risks for Europe as location of industry? These and similar questions will be discussed in the working group.
