Sustainable city of the future
Dresden has the UN’s 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development firmly in sight, with a bundle of coordinated initiatives that are evaluated on an ongoing basis. As a FAIRTRADE CITY, Dresden promotes fair trade at a local level. In the "Local Agenda 21 for Dresden", more than 80 initiatives have pledged their commitment to sustainability. The REGKLAM (Regional Climate Change Adaptation Programme) project is working on sustainable transport planning and urban development, and, with a view to 2030, the German Federal Ministry of Research and Education is developing a holistic and sustainable vision for Dresden as a "City of the Future".
