The Green Sofa

Green Sofa

Established in 2015 the Green Energiewende Sofa is the icon of the Berlin Energy Transition Dialogue (BETD). It advertises the conference of the Global Energiewende and its annual liaising with other international summits and illustrious fairs in order to foster the global dialogue on the energy transition.

Between the BETD conferences the Green Energiewende Sofa, aka Green Sofa, travels around the globe: It has already toured to 6 out of the 7 continents. On its previous 39 global stops in 19 countries, The Green Sofa welcomed and interviewed around 1,000 high ranked personalities and took photos of more than 3,500 visitors. The Green Sofa had the honour to welcome very prestigious guests: The most prominent visitors have been the French President Emmanuel Macron, the President of Iceland Guðni Th. Jóhannesson, the President of Peru Martín Vizcarra as well as the President of the Marshall Islands Hilda Heine. Moreover, the Sofa was delighted to host more than 400 international ministers & State Secretaries for energy, environment, the economy and foreign affairs.

As you can imagine and due to the Corona pandemic, the Green Sofa of course refrains from traveling the world like it did in the past. As soon as the world will overcome the virus the Green Sofa will of course continue its global journey and will especially visit those regions and countries that have not been in the focus of its activities so far.

Stay tuned. The journey will go on!

Green Sofa Dialogues

We were all disappointed that the Sofa could not travel during 2020. So we thought: Take a break, make yourself a cup of coffee and join some of the best energy experts in the world. The Green Sofa Dialogue is a series of videos that brings the best of the energy transition to your sofa. Because we are all working from home anyway!
