German Sustainability Action Days

The German Council for Sustainable Development (RNE) established the German Sustainability Action Days (DAN) in 2012 on the occasion of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20).


The German Sustainability Action Days will be held from 20 September to 26 September 2022. To allow as many people as possible to participate, initiatives implemented from 18 September up to and including 8 October will also be considered.

The aim of the Action Days is to enhance visibility throughout Germany of real commitment that sets an example to others, to foster public awareness of the topic of sustainability and to inspire more people to undertake a commitment to sustainability. Every individual can help change things for the better. With that in mind, the Sustainability Action Days are aimed at everyone in Germany. The more people get involved, the stronger the signal is that we can send out together with the German Sustainability Action Days.

Under the motto of #gemeinsamfuermorgen (together for tomorrow), a joint campaign was launched in 2020 together with other stakeholders involved in the topic of sustainability. In 2021, the movement has risen and have joined forces again in order to hold events and initiatives as part of the German Sustainability Action Days.

Since 2015 the Sustainability Action Days have been held as part of the European Sustainable Development Week, which is an initiative founded by Germany, France and Austria in which people from all over Europe can participate.
