Challenging Political Authorities: Sustainability in Administration

The workshop will present both scientific insight and practical experiences from the path of sustainable administration in Germany. Sustainable development challenges the political authorities. Above all, political administrations play a crucial role in promoting sustainable strategies. The Local Agenda 21, for instance requires local administrations to elaborate and implement sustainability on a local level. The task raises a wide range of questions: How to reach permanent organisational learning among administrations? Which effective and efficient toolkit should be applied? How to deal with cross-cutting policy goals?
