As a "Climate Alliance" community in Austria, the municipality of Laxenburg strives to raise awareness about climate issues. The Laxenburg Environment and Climate Day brings together local residents and regional stakeholders to discuss environmental topics and exchange information. 

IIASA has regularly co-hosted this annual event in the past, and also participated in this year's outdoor event. IIASA researcher Martin Jung introduced visitors to a biodiversity app, and gave a short presentation on the effects of climate change, land use, and globalization on biodiversity.
