Turmoil in the City Council

As already reported, there will be a council meeting on 12 February at which the GöLinke/ALG council group and councillor Dr. Francisco Welter-Schultes (Pirates) (PDF) will introduce a climate policy motion based on the motion we have prepared. However, this will not be the only climate policy motion of the session; in fact, three more have been registered: An intergroup motion by the B’90/Greens, the FDP and the PARTEI (PDF); a second by the SPD council group (PDF) and a third by the CDU council group (PDF).

Here you can find information on all public meetings of the city council, including the agendas and registered motions.

Darin könnt ihr jetzt nachlesen, wo was in welchen Sektoren gespart werden kann, inklusive Erklärungen (PDF), wie die Zahlen zustande gekommen sind.

Answers to urgent questions

A few days ago, on the occasion of the EU programme “100 Climate-neutral Cities by 2030 – by and for the Citizens”, we sent an open letter to the local politicians in Göttingen and asked them to take a stand. Of course we don’t want to withhold the answers from you!

Dr. Francisco Welter-Schultes of the Pirates (PDF), Dr. Ehsan Kangarani, the CDU candidate for mayor (PDF) and Doreen Fragel, the Green candidate for mayor (PDF) have replied individually.

The FDP parliamentary group (PDF) and the Greens parliamentary group (PDF) also replied.

Emails to the MPs!

We want to show the city council members that there is broad support for climate neutrality by 2030 – and thus for the motion – among the Göttingen population. Therefore, we have started a campaign where YOU can write them emails! From now on you can download email templates.

Here for individuals who want to write to MPs.

And here for organisations who want to tell their members about it.

Open letter to local politicians in Göttingen

On the occasion of the EU programme “100 Climate-neutral Cities by 2030 – by and for the Citizens” we have sent an open letter to the local politicians of Göttingen. The aim of this funding programme will be to support selected European municipalities within the framework of the EU Green Deal and the European Union’s NextGenerationEU stimulus programme. The selected cities will be supported (including financially) to achieve climate neutrality by 2030. The prerequisite for this, however, is that the cities already have their own plans to achieve climate neutrality by that time.

We have asked the politicians to take a position on this and will keep you informed.
