Sixth Episode: Jennifer Morgan – Germany’s climate diplomacy & feminist foreign policy
Welcome to the second season of “The Climate Bridge Podcast”, adelphi’s and Polis180’s podcast series. This podcast, like the Transatlantic Climate Bridge initiative behind it, focuses on climate change and climate policy in Germany, the United States and Canada. A key goal of both the initiative and this podcast is to improve climate cooperation between the three countries. In pursuit of this goal, Season 2 welcomes great guests and insightful topics on, among others, the upcoming COP28 or the transatlantic implications of US Inflation Reduction Act.
About this episode
After finishing up the last season with an episode on climate youth activists and their impressions from COP27 in Sharm el-Sheik, the new season starts off with Germany’s priorities on its road to COP28 in Dubai .
For this episode, our hosts Mary Hellmich – adelphi – and Kathrin Liebhäuser – Polis180 – speak with Germany’s State Secretary and Special Envoy for International Climate Action, Jennifer Morgan. In addition to diving into Germany’s activities for COP28 and discussing the conference’s host, Jennifer Morgan gives insights into her transition from past roles in NGOs to her current position as climate ambassador at the German Federal Foreign Office, as well as into the country’s new feminist foreign policy guidelines. The three women cover key points on:
* Germany’s activities on the road to COP28: Putting forward a transformational road map to close the 1.5 degree Celsius gap and a global renewable energy target
* Direct engagements and science-based conversations with countries with less ambitious climate policies
* Germany’s feminist foreign policy guidelines intersecting with climate policy: Involving marginalized groups in decision-making processes of climate and environmental projects
