On November 17 and 18 online and in Neu-Isenburg
See and be seen - as always, the VILF Annual Meeting offered a great opportunity to meet interesting people and experience exciting presentations.
We were represented with a stand in the foyer on 17.11., where we met some familiar people and also made new contacts.
The series of lectures began with the topic "Generational change - between change, disruption and continuity". Johanna von Eben-Worlée from Worlée Chemie GmbH spoke in her lecture about how important it is to take the employees along with you when it comes to future topics such as digitalization and company development, and to shape change together as a constant process that leads over mountains and through valleys.
The fact that the topic of "environment, climate, CO2, sustainability" is in the focus of the industry was shown by the lectures on #gogreen. The speakers gave a very good overview of the efforts the industry is making for environmental and climate protection and where the entrepreneurial, but also social challenges lie.
How important the topic of climate change and the immediate, emphatic global action for the complete reduction of CO2 emissions is for all mankind, Prof. Mojib Latif from GEOMAR Helmholtz Centre for Ocean Research Kiel and University of Kiel showed very impressively in his closing lecture "After us, the deluge?": "You can't negotiate or compromise with physics".
The evening event in a convivial round of tables, with good food and great musical accompaniment was a nice end to the day
