Cities and urban areas play a crucial role in achieving the goals of environmental, economic and social sustainability worldwide. By 2100, about 85 percent of all people will live in cities. This projection shows how decisive it is to prepare cities and city regions worldwide for the future - to develop them towards sustainable, resilient and livable places.

How can this succeed? How can internationally set goals of sustainable development deploy positive effects on people in different urban regions of the world? Which framework conditions should be considered, which solutions can be taken? We would like to discuss these and further questions together with you.

We cordially invite you to
