The Transatlantic Climate Bridge Conference 2022 is a three-day online coming together that seeks to further strengthen the climate and energy alliance between Germany, the United States, and Canada. This year's conference will convene from Wednesday, 6 July through Friday, 8 July.
From panel discussions and journalistic interviews to live podcast recordings and business roundtables, our innovative formats will keep conversations fresh, informative, and leave plenty of room for interaction. The sessions are designed to provide a space for discourse and collaboration between national and sub-national actors, the private sector, civil society organizations, and youth change agents.
The Transatlantic Climate Bridge (TCB) is pleased to invite to the second annual TCB Conference! TCB is taking place online from 6-8 July, the 2022 TCB Conference comes on the heels of the G7 summit, which has climate and energy front and center of the agenda. The outcomes of this summit will be the starting point for our conference – our opening event will feature inputs from high-level government officials from Germany, Canada, and the United States, followed by in-depth analysis from international climate journalists, who will translate what the high-level agreements mean not only for international cooperation, but also for the private sector, civil society, and subnational actors at the forefront of climate policy implementation.
