Dear Sir or Madam Dear colleague

With a call to “change course”, which links an ecological restructuring of the economy with the expansion of life opportunities and the democratization of society, IG Metall - the German Industrial Union of Metalworkers - intends to add its own conceptual contribution to the broader social debate.
IG Metall’s commitment to link ecological and social questions has a long tradition, dating back to the IG Metall Congress “Task for the Future: Quality of Life” held in Oberhausen in 1972, and the initial report by the Club of Rome entitled “The Limits to Growth” (which also appeared in 1972). The continuing exacerbation of global crises – both economic and ecological – makes clear that we must put a call to change course on our agenda with more urgency.

IG Metall is organizing an international conference to be held in Berlin from 5th-7th December 2012 at which we intend to promote and intensify the discussion of trade union positions. Conference delegates will discuss a new concept of progress for industrialized societies and alternative paths for development with representatives from politics, academia, environmental associations and business.
Let me cordially invite you to our conference. For further information, please refer to the enclosed material, including organizational notes, preliminary program, forum selection sheet and registration form.
We are looking forward to meeting you in Berlin. Yours sincerely
