Sustainability Platform Brandenburg serves as a forum for discussion and an effective and inclusive network for the many different sustainability initiatives in the federal state of Brandenburg. It was founded in January 2019 and is funded by Brandenburg's Ministry for Agriculture, the Environment and Climate Protection. The Research Institute for Sustainability hosts the platform's secretariat, which coordinates the platform's day-to-day operations, manages its website and develops innovative networking formats.
Connecting leaders in sustainability
An annual plenary session attended by the most important sustainability players in Brandenburg is the highlight in the platform's calendar. It is convened by a steering group comprising 20 representatives from civil society, the private sector, science, local government, social organisations, trade unions, and consumer associations in Brandenburg. This plenary session is an opportunity for the different actors to get to know each other, make connections, realise potential synergies, and initiate joint projects. In the spirit of "unity in diversity", Sustainability Platform Brandenburg strives to take the specific circumstances of the different actors into account while at the same time emphasising the objectives and operating conditions they have in common. These discussions can add momentum to the process of implementing the state government's sustainability strategy.
Raising awareness of sustainability
Sustainability Platform Brandenburg also sees its role in raising public awareness of sustainability and highlighting precisely what needs to be done to achieve the goals of the sustainability strategy.
