Transforming cities: from industrial centres to sustainable urban areas
Connective Cities organises from 5th to 7th December 2016 a dialogue event on the topic “Transforming cities: from industrial centres to sustainable urban areas” in Bocholt, Germany.
Connective Cities is a joint project of the German Association of Cities, Engagement Global and the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ). The event is geared towards both German and international municipal actors with an interest in and first-hand experience in the transformation of post-industrial urban areas, its planning and its implementation. Municipal actors include representatives of municipalities as well as representatives from civil society, academia and business, active in municipal projects in this thematic area.
All participants are expected to engage proactively in the international dialogue by presenting their experience, showcasing examples of good practices in their municipality and/or identifying and discussing concrete challenges and needs they face.
