Promoting international dialogue for the energy transition
Public diplomacy on the energy transition
Transforming the energy supply to protect the climate and conserve resources is a major challenge for the global community. Close international cooperation is required to ensure that the transformation is successful. The energy transition has therefore become an important field of activity in foreign policy and diplomacy, and one that relies heavily on specialist dialogue at policy level. As a long-term pioneer of the energy transition, Germany plays a prominent role here.
Greater public awareness and energy policy dialogue worldwide to implement the global energy transition.
The project supports the German Federal Foreign Office and German missions abroad in integrating the global energy transition into their foreign policy agendas. It provides advisory services and prepares the necessary topics systematically.
The project also includes specific public-relations measures to raise public awareness of the global energy transition in the target countries and address other target groups from policy-making, business and civil society. It thus aims to foster international knowledge transfer and dialogue on the topic and to mainstream the notion of the energy transition globally.
The project comprises three fields of activity:
- It presents international debates on energy policy by organising and updating the ‘Energy in Transition – Powering Tomorrow’ touring exhibition on the global energy transition.
- It forms networks and holds discussion events on the global energy transition to promote media reporting, dialogue and public discussions on the topic.
- The project also advises the German Federal Foreign Office and German missions abroad on communication measures to position Germany internationally as an actor in the global energy transition.
