HelpForUkraine: Down-to-Earth

More information for companies dealing as well with economic implications can be found on our dedicated website.

Given the current war in the Ukraine, we are all extremely concerned. Together with the #PartnersForSustainability, we have decided to call off the original topic of the conference German Czech Economic Forum: Sustainability Down-to Earth, for there is now a more pressing issue.

Instead, we will offer a forum \. This forum will take place at the same time, with the same link, but exclusively online. The focus will be on how companies can support the people of Ukraine here and there with specific examples of company assistance and an outline of its possibilities.

The money originally planned for the costly technical support of the hybrid event will be spent on a specific project to help people affected by the war in Ukraine. We expect that we will at least hold the workshops, which have been prepared with great effort, at a later date.

You can still look forward to the presence of Saxon state Minister for Energy, Climate Protection, Environment and Agriculture @Wolfram Günther, Deputy Minister of the Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic @René Neděla and other great guests.
