“Green Talents – International Forum for High Potentials in Sustainable Development” was called into life in 2009 by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research to promote the international exchange of innovative green ideas from various fields of research.

Every year, the Ministry honors 25 young researchers with the “Green Talents” award, who are invited to visit the hot spots of German sustainability research and establish a unique network with peers and experts.

The goal of sustainable development is to find a balance between the need for socio-economic development and the need to preserve the environment, and to thus meet the requirements of present and future generations.
