Cities worldwide are pursuing the goal of sustainable and inclusive urban development. To achieve this, knowledge exchange at an international level and building networks for politicians, city administrators, practitioners and researchers to engage with each other is becoming increasingly important.
The City of Berlin is hosting an event for actors in the field of sustainable urban development. The event will be hosted by the Governing Mayor of Berlin and President of the World Association of the Major Metropolises (Metropolis), Michael Müller.
Event participants will learn more about the online services the use platform offers including practical learnings from international case studies, and networking opportunities with citymakers working in the field of sustainable urban development.
