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 with around 57 municipalities, the City of Münster and Münsterland e.V., which coordinates the region's climate protection work as a network centre. It is supported by the Climate.Networker of the EnergyAgency.NRW. A corresponding Münsterland-wide campaign for climate protection was launched on 22 April 2021. It was also developed by the EnergyAgency.NRW on behalf of the state of NRW.
"Münsterland is climate land" also means that everyone can do something! Here we present various topics where you can become active. Whether it's savingCO2, sustainable nutrition, energy-efficient renovation or a climate-friendly garden. If many people from Münsterland join in, we can support THE GOOD LIFE in the region together.
Here you will find tips, hints and information:

While in the Netherlands it is already the task of every municipality to present a "Transitievisie Warmte" by the end of 2021 as a political orientation for decarbonising the building stock, there is still no obligation at the municipal level in most regions of Germany. The climate targets of the German government and climate change are pushing for action in the heat transition even without a concrete political commitment for individual municipalities. Therefore, in this webinar we want to look at the roles of municipalities in the heat transition.
Invited speakers are Harmke Bekkema from the Dutch Programme for Natural Gas-Free Neighbourhoods (PAW - Programma Aardgasvrije Wijken) and Elena Cantos from the Agency for Renewable Energies e.V. as project manager of the project "Kommunale Wärmewende".
The event is aimed at municipalities, but also at all other interested persons.
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.
