We Congratulate the Wuppertal Institute to 30 Years of Supporting the Transformation Toward a Resilient and Inclusive Future

The world is changing at a fast pace. Reactive or gradual approaches might not suffice to address challenges such as the climate change or growing inequities. Rather, we need transformative approaches in order to shape a resilient and inclusive future.

The Wuppertal Institute has co-founded the CSCP 15 years ago #15CSCP and now we congratulate the Wuppertal Institute on their 30th  #30JahreWI  anniversary! We are proud to look back at 15 years of collaborative work and are more committed than ever to jointly accelerate impactful transformations.

In these key areas of our times: climate, environment and energy, the Wuppertal Institute has been generating world-class research and more for 30 years.

We are grateful to have a strong partnership with the Wuppertal Institute to jointly accelerate the transformation to a resilient and inclusive future in the region as well as around the world.

Our collaborations over the years have been many, to highlight a few:

We developed in The Low Carbon Future Cities Project an integrated low carbon, adaptation, and circular economy strategy for a city government in Wuxi, China and Düsseldorf, Germany;

We joined hands to create a travelling exhibition on the future of work to inform citizens on how digitalisation can be used to support us to have fulfilling and sustainable jobs. In an ongoing partnership we are exploring in a living lab how to upscale urban sharing strategies.

The Wuppertal Institute provided their expertise in calculating the footprint of sustainable lifestyle activities we developed for an APP for Vodafone Germany Employees.

Only recently did we publish a discussion paper on “Sustainable Supply Chains: Global Cooperative Regional Economies for Prosperity and Resilience” outlining a future scenario of globally cooperative and cycle-oriented regional economies that fundamentally reduce global inequalities in opportunities and the quality of life, while at the same time protecting and preserving the environment.

We are looking forward to continuing our excellent cooperation with the Wuppertal Institute and many joint projects to come. Celebrate 30 years of Wuppertal Institute with us by joining their conference “Innovativ, transformativ und krisensicher die Zukunft gestalten“, on 23 June 2021. The programme and the registration form are available here in German.
