Göttingen nachhaltig: Fair trade shopping c) Göttingen Tourismus Discover Göttingen in a sustainable way

As a key location for modern science, Göttingen has always kept pace with the times. Three universities, five Max Planck Institutes and numerous other research establishments continuously strive to make our lives even more worth living. Of course, the topic of sustainability has become increasingly significant. Going beyond these institutions, the Göttingen region has forged ahead over the past years. Projects such as the Klimaschutztage (Climate Protection Days) featuring numerous campaigns to promote sustainability have been a fixed component of the calendar for residents and visitors of Göttingen alike for years. Environmentally-friendly shopping is a matter of course in many shops and is promoted by the city through the Göttinger Klimakarte (Climate Card).
