In September 2017, 280 representatives of science and practice convened for the first time in the City of Salzburg’s Unipark Nonntal to discuss new ways of promoting the issue of climate change and climate protection, so as to encourage taking action.
The K3 website provides a press review, video footage of the keynotes, and information on the event’s papers, program, background, objectives, organisers and partners: k3-klimakongress.org.
The Salzburg conference marked the start to this format of biennial congresses held in the D-A-CH region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland). K3 organisers are the CCCA in Austria, the German Climate Consortium e.V. (DKK) and Smart Energy for Europe Platform (SEFEP) gGmbH in Germany, as well as National Centre for Climate Services NCCS and SCNAT in Switzerland.
The next K3 conference will be held from the 15th to the 16th 2021 of september in Zurich.
In Salzburg, K3 was supported by the Climate and Energy Fund, the former Austrian Federal Ministry for Science, Research and Economy, the Federal State of Salzburg, and the University of Salzburg.
