The Heartland Institute partnered with the Germany-based European Institute for Climate and Energy (EIKE) to host the Eighth International Conference on Climate Change in Munich, Germany, November 30 – December 1, 2012. The event was also the Fifth International Conference on Climate and Energy. This is the second time The Heartland Institute has hosted a climate conference outside the United States.
