As part of the basic course series “Energiewende 2.0”, organised by the Heinrich Böll Foundation, two separate online webinars offer an introduction to the topic of sufficiency for socially and politically engaged people and other interested parties.

Frauke Wiese and Johannes Thema from the EnSu group provide easy-to-understand information about the climate protection potential of sufficiency policies. They also dispel existing prejudices and outline ways in which politicians, companies and citizens can implement sufficiency measures in practice.

The seminars will be held in German

This is a two-day online event. The two basic course parts can be attended independently of each other. There will be the opportunity to ask questions live and in the chat. Participation is free of charge.
