Baden-Württemberg Prime Minister Winfried Kreutschmann has called for greater determination in climate protection for talks at the World Climate Conference.
Glasgow – “We have to advance our commitment to climate protection much faster and more effectively,” Glasgow said during his visit to Great Britain on Sunday at a meeting of the so-called Under 2 Coalition in Glasgow. We have to do everything to move forward.”
Kretschmann: “This is real climate protection from below!”
Baden-Württemberg launched the ambitious International Coalition for Climate Protection with California and other regions in 2015, and it has grown significantly in the meantime, according to Kretschmann. Today it represents 1.75 billion people from more than 40 nation states. “This large increase in membership shows that subnational level of confidence in climate protection has increased significantly. This is real climate protection from the bottom up!”
Political Dialogue with the Prime Minister of Scotland
Kretschmann also met on Sunday for political talks with Scottish Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon, Catalonia’s President Pere Aragonese and Andalusia’s President Juan Manuel Moreno Bonilla. On Monday he wants to open a new representative office in Baden-Württemberg in London. British Foreign Minister for Economic Affairs Greg Hands and German Ambassador Andreas Michaelis are also expected to attend the ceremony. Southwest already has many other foreign representations, for example in the US city of San Francisco, India and Israel.
