The “Transatlantic Climate Bridge (TCB)” program was launched in 2008 jointly by the German Federal Foreign Office and the German Federal Ministry for the Environment.
The purpose of the program is to strengthen climate cooperation and dialogue between Germany, Canada and the USA on all levels, support announced changes in USA climate policy, and to involve the USA more closely in the international climate process.
Through trilateral formats, the event series “Transatlantic Climate Bridge: Climate-friendly urban food systems for Dortmund, Vancouver and Pittsburgh” will facilitate exchange between cities in Germany, Canada and the USA. This event series focuses on urban diplomacy and city collaborations in the fight against climate change. The series includes high-profile panel discussions, expert workshops and field visits to food-related businesses, institutions and community initiatives.
