Brazil-Germany Symposium on Sustainable Development
The Brazil-Germany Symposium on Sustainable Development was held for the first time in 2003, in Tübingen, Germany. The objective of the event, which is held every two years, alternating among the two countries, is to present and discuss the differences between Brazil and Germany, in terms of sustainable development, relating cultural identity with the earth’s resources and their processes. Energy, water, soil, climate, biodiversity, agriculture and forestation, policies, economy, and health are analyzed and discussed in their distinctive particularities for the purpose of seeking solutions and new opportunities for the progress of sustainable development.
