Due to the covid-19 situation in Bergen, this seminar will be digital.

Are Børjesson and Elisabeth Sørheim from the new Agency of Climate at Bergen commune will speak about how to reach the climate goals.

Abstract: Abstract: The city government of Bergen has an ambition to be a fossil-free city in 2030. With only 10 years to go there is a lot to do. Green strategy is Bergens climate and energy action plan that describes how Bergen shall be a driving force towards fossil free transportation, fossil free heating, fossil free waste management and a fossil free harbour. A climate budget was implemented in 2018 to make climate a part of the management system in the city. There is an increased focus on data and an insight that there is along way to go and radical measures are needed to reach the goals and a new Climate strategy is in the making.In this meeting you will be given an insight on how the new Agency for Climate will address these goals and make them happen.
