Our mission here at atlantic-community.org is to end the exclusivity of foreign policy discourse and give a voice to a new generation of thinkers as well as to strengthen the transatlantic partnership. Therefore, we are delighted to publish the analyses and recommendations of six students concerning how Europe and North America can best deal with climate change throughout the week.
Although the competition was open only to students of German universities, and German students enrolled in international universities, we would like to encourage all members to join in the debate nevertheless. Please tell us what you think of the students' analyses and policy recommendations.
Entrants were asked to engage with the following question and come up with practical policy recommendations:
"How can Europe and the United States cooperate in creating incentives for action against climate change?"
Publication schedule of the shortlisted articles:
- Salvador Santino F Reglime (University of Osnabrueck) "Identity, Incentives and Action: A New Approach to Climate Change"
- Dominik Hübner (St. Andrews) "Learn from Mistakes of Past International Environmentla Treaties
- Jan Schierkolk (Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva) "Global Sustainable Development Through Climate Change Tech Pool"
The previous two parts of the competition dealt with Russia and the West as well as Iran's Nuclear Program. Please click on the links below to view the final Memo's compiled by the students.
Atlantic Memo 28: The Reset: How Germany Can Set A New Tone For Western-Russian Engagement
Atlantic Memo 27: Engaging Tehran With Concrete Reciprocity

UPDATE: Thank you for all your contributions and comments on the above articles. We have just published the Memo entitled "Transatlantic Leadership by Example: Toward Inclusive Climate Change Policy". This contains a convergence of views from all six participants and was the result of an intensively collaborative process involving a wiki, text chat and a conference call.
This competition is sponsored by the U.S. Mission to Germany.
