How can we safeguard worldwide economic growth and prosperity for all and reduce the pressure on natural resources at the same time? How can we abandon fossil fuels in favour of sustainable energy? How can we ensure that all people are supplied with sustainable energy as the world population continues to grow? How can we fight climate change? – Our future depends on the answers to these questions. The United Nations has made it the objective of its Agenda for Sustainable Development to find these answers by 2030.

This quest will only be successful if research produces new and ground-breaking ideas. For this, we rely in particular on young researchers from around the world who are devoting their work to ensuring more sustainability. Our Green Talents Competition honours the best emerging researchers and invites them to Germany to discuss with us good pathways to the future. Our aim is to stimulate young creative minds and encourage discussion among researchers from different disciplines. The more good ideas from the many parts of the world we bring together, the more we increase our chances of winning the fight against climate change. I look forward to receiving the applications of plenty of ‘green talents’ and hope to meet you in person in Berlin in autumn 2018.
