Münsterland is Klimaland: Under this title we present ourselves as a region that stands for THE GOOD LIFE - today and in the future! This includes being mindful of natural and human resources, operating in a climate-friendly way and creating healthy living conditions. We want to make Münsterland more future-proof for THE GOOD LIFE of future generations. This can only be achieved if everyone participates. Help us and make Münsterland a climate land!
We will show you best-practice examples from the region, provide information and tips , and focus on innovative projects that make Münsterland a climate land.
We are the districts of Borken, Coesfeld, Steinfurt and Warendorf, the City of Münster and Münsterland e.V., which coordinates the region's climate protection work as a network centre, as well as the state organisation NRW.Energy4Climate. A corresponding Münsterland-wide campaign for climate protection accompanies the actors. It was developed by the state of North Rhine-Westphalia and is now coordinated by the regionally anchored climate networkers of NRW.Energy4Climate.
Following the first, very successful Bits & Trees 2018 in Berlin and in consultation with the organisers, we are now setting up a regional offshoot with a focus on global perspectives. We focus on ecological, economic and social sustainability aspects of digitalisation. In this way, we want to connect bits and trees, facilitate knowledge exchange, stimulate cooperation and innovative thinking, and be a platform for education and awareness-raising.
As part of the project "Experience the Future for All. Münsterlanad Global - Local" project, the kick-off event will take place on 2 September in Senden Castle. In our everyday lives we experience global interdependencies on a daily basis. Less present is the commitment of many who work for a just and sustainable world in the South and also here in the North. In order to make this more visible and tangible, Vamos is initiating the project "Münsterland Global - Local", through which stations will be created in the districts of Coesfeld and Warendorf over the next two years that will show positive examples of the Münsterland's global connections. Subsequently, these will be linked by cycling tours on eco-social transformation.
There are already many people in Münsterland who are active in the field of climate protection and who are making Münsterland a climate country. We introduce you to the faces and stories of these "climate countries" and maybe they will inspire you to join in. Because they all show: Even small measures can have big effects.
