Chargé d’Affaires Clark Price gives Remarks on Defending Democracy and Fighting Climate Change

“Connected Challenges: Defending Democracy and Fighting Climate Change” – this is what representatives from Microsoft, the German and U.S. government discussed on February 9 at the Microsoft Atrium in Berlin. Michelle Patron, Senior Director of Global Sustainability Policy at Microsoft Corporation, who opened the evening virtually from Washington D.C. as well as in-person guests Federal Minister for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Nuclear Safety, and Consumer Protection Steffi Lemke, and Chargé d’Affaires Woodward Clark Price stressed that climate change is already putting severe stress on democracies. Consequently, actions to build more resilient democracies and mitigate climate change such as fostering a circular economy urgently need to be taken.
