Langenburg Forum for Sustainability
According to the United Nations, more than seven billion people inhabit our planet. By 2050, that number is predicted to be almost 10 billion. All these people need water, food, and they long for improved living standards and a life in a clean environment.
The Langenburg Forum for Sustainability gGmbH creates a space for interaction and debate. Here, through conferences and at round table meetings, we grapple with the question of how the transition to a sustainable lifestyle and sustainable economic growth can be made in the era of exponential population growth.
On these grounds, the Langenburg Forum brings together decision-makers and lateral-thinkers, multipliers and start-ups from management, civil society and politics in topic specific forums.
The “Langenburg Forum for Sustainability” deliberately takes place in the Hohenlohe countryside: a region with strong medium-sized industrial enterprises and with the highest density of organic-farmland in Europe. The Hohenlohe region exemplifies deep roots in the local countryside, affirmation for the European Idea and global economic connectivity.
In its work, the non-profit Langenburg Forum for Sustainability can count on the support of HRH The Prince of Wales and his International Sustainability Unit as well as a wide network of advisory boards and partners.
Following the 2015 Langenburg Forum on “sustainable mobility”, the forum jointly hosted a round table in June 2016 on mobility concepts for metropolises and urban areas with the Science & Innovation Network of the British Embassy in Berlin. 50 experts discussed possible solutions and approaches, and these results will be built upon during the next Langenburg Forum on June 8 and 9, 2017.
