Goethe-Institut projects around the world are linking up to address this issue.

Thus, regional Goethe-Instituts will also accompany the coming UN Climate Conference be supported with events: from November 24-26 2010, the Goethe-Institut Mexico is organising the international symposium “Greener Cities – A Citizens’ Vision.” The central issue will be the significance of citizen participation in urban redevelopment, and what measures can be implemented to strengthen civic initiative.
