More than 100 participants from the general public and from the economic, agricultural, transport and energy sectors gathered together on February 4 and 5, 2018 to discuss the main challenges facing Luxembourg in terms of climate change policy for 2030-2050, and to jointly develop innovative climate protection proposals that will benefit society as a whole. Our Luxinnovation Wood and Ecoinnovation clusters were there.

With this first “wake up weekend”, Luxembourg’s Ministry of Sustainability broke new ground in the development of the climate protection plan. During the weekend, innovative ideas were debated and collected in a “future workshop” that should serve to enrich the government’s new climate protection plan. With them at Luxembourg’s beautiful Neumünster Abbey Cultural Center was Philippe Genot, Cluster Manager Wood at Luxinnovation, and Charles-Albert Florentin, Cluster Manager, EcoInnovation.

The workshop took place in a very dynamic and constructive atmosphere and represents the kick-off event for the development of the new “national climate plan” for the post-Kyoto period, from 2020 to 2030-2050. This new plan, initiated “Generatioun Klima”, is to be developed in a participative, creative and innovative approach.

Climate change and the development of the Wood and Ecoinnovation sectors

Charles-Albert Florentin and Philippe Genot were representing their respective clusters members and participated in the working groups in order to develop innovative projects related to the challenges around climate change issues. They were both very interested in bringing to the discussions their strategies for the development of their sectors.

“It was a very good event with interesting insights and political views and evolutions, partly due to the presence of Carole Dieschbourg, Luxembourg Minister for the Environment and Camille Gira, State Secretary for Sustainable Development and Infrastructure.  We were quite firm in our insistence that the private sectors and the companies have to be part of the change,” says Charles-Albert.

Minister Carole Dieschbourg welcomed the participants’ commitment and was very satisfied with the dynamics of the process but also with the quality of the proposals:  “Today we sent a clear signal that Luxembourg is committed and that citizens are more than motivated to take up the challenge of climate change and to work together to remove the obstacles.”
