Vilm Island - Germany
Networking is a critical aspect in promoting climate issue and enabling knowledge transfer. ANESCo (Alumni Network for Ecology, Sustainability, and Conservation) serves as a great discussion and cooperation platform for worldwide professionals, researchers, and practitioners in the field of Ecology, Sustainability, and Conservation. In June 2015, the network managed to conduct the 2nd batch of fruitful collaborative seminar: 'The Way to Sustainability on the Isle of Ruegen: Gaps and Bridges'.
The seminar, hosted by University of Greifswald LENC program, and funded by DAAD, has invited German Universities Alumni around the globe to participate in interactive working group sessions, identify local barriers and produce pragmatic solutions in 5 main areas;
- Energy, Climate Protection and Transportation,
- Tourism Development,
- Environmental education and wilderness experience,
- Protected Area Management, and
- Land Use and Landscape Development.
The objective of this seminar was not only to conduct series of insightful dialogue but also to offer unique perspective from developing countries, a sustainable recommendation package for Local Government and Residents of Rugen, Germany. Altami Arasty, a representative of Climigato, actively participated in the seminar, both as spokesperson (Presentation: Renewable Energy Investment in Indonesia: Gaps and Bridges) and working group contributor in Environmental Education and Wilderness Experience. The seminar provides good opportunity for Climigato to be part of global community for Climate Protection.
