In October 2019, the initiative Scientists4Future received the Federal Sustainability Award 2019 of the German Federal Association for Sustainability. We support Scientists4Future and are pleased to hear about the recognition and appreciation of the initiative's acitivities.
In march 2019, the Scientists4Future initiative published a statement on the climate protests in Germany that was written by scientists and approved of the young peoples' concerns. The statement has been signed by more than 26,000 scientists (mainly from Germany, Austria and Switzerland).
The jury highlighted the comprehensive information material offered on the initiative's website as it contributed to a fact-based analysis of climate issues.
