Bonn, December 4th, 2012. Record attendance at the third SusCon sustainability conference: over 450 delegates from all over the world came to Bonn, Germany, to discuss the path towards a Green Economy.
More than 450 participants from 37 countries brought the issue of a Green Economy into the centre of the former Bundestag in Bonn from November 27th-28th. The motto of the International Conference on Sustainable Business and Consumption (SusCon) was “Green Economy – from intention to action”. In the plenum of the World Conference Centre and during all 12 thematic sessions, delegates from businesses, non-governmental organisations, the media and science discussed concrete steps towards achieving a sustainable economy and society. Important highlight of SusCon 2012 was the video communique by HRH Prince Charles in which he underlined the value of organic farming and the need for sustainable development. Other high points were the trenchant presentations of Auma Obama, Alain Caparros, Helmy Abouleish, Pavan Sukhdev, as well as Ernst-Ulrich von Weizsäcker and Ulrich Hoffmann.
