Event hall E.09, Wissensturm Linz: Keynote speeches, poster session, workshops and closing panel, participation free of charge, registration required

This symposium - part of the Climate Action Days Linz 2022 - aims to inform and involve citizens on the topic of climate change.

Based on the concept of climate-social policy, the discussion is related to the city of Linz:

  • what are the challenges in climate protection and climate change adaptation and what measures are being implemented in the city of Linz,
  • which participants (citizens, initiatives and associations, businesses, NGOs, the administration, research institutions) are active in climate work in a variety of ways
  • how citizens can participate and get involved in climate policy processes; and
  • what the next relevant steps could be on the way to a climate-social city of Linz.

If you are arriving by car, please consider carpooling whenever possible.


For this project, ecological resource management is a top priority, ranging from waste prevention, repair, upcycling, to recycling of various products. We also have numerous interactive activities, such as plastic shredding and molding into new forms, repairing old electronic devices, and upcycling clothing. For the waste that cannot be avoided, we have installed two clearly visible waste collection points on site.

Food and Drinks:

At our event, there will be no catering provided. However, the restaurants and cafes at Hauptplatz are happy to serve you food and drinks. If you bring your own food and drinks, we recommend using reusable dishes and bottles, or opting for deposit bottles. If waste is generated, we kindly ask you to dispose of it properly at the two waste collection points provided.
