We cordially invite you to the Lakes Conference 2023. Too little attention is still paid to lakes, wetlands and their catchments as carbon sinks and biodiversity hotspots. Lakes continue to be overexploited, peatlands drained and wetlands not rewetted as required. With the Lakes Conference 2023, we want to strengthen the focus on these valuable habitats and at the same time broaden the perspective for contributions to natural climate protection in Germany and beyond.
In the first part of the conference, research results on climate change and lakes and the Action Programme Natural Climate Protection will be presented. The second part of the conference will focus on the implementation of practical projects for the protection of peatlands and lake biodiversity in Germany.
The lake conference is organised by the Living Rivers Foundation in cooperation with the Global Nature Fund, the Living Lakes Network Germany and the GRÜNEN LIGA. On 20 January, the founding event of Wassernetz Berlin will take place at the same location, with contributions from the Senate Administration, the Berlin House of Representatives and from the water- and lake-minded civil society.
We are very much looking forward to seeing you there.
