Municipal Response to COVID-19

The international community of practice Connective Cities organized a series of virtual dialogue formats in collaboration with committed municipal actors on measures, challenges and solutions to address the Corona crisis from August to December 2020. The series of events targeted German and international practitioners from the municipal family working on different aspects of addressing the Corona crisis in cities. The participants were encouraged to exchange ideas through presentations of good practices and were offered the virtual formats needed for this.

Many urban practitioners also already have concrete project ideas and urgently want to work further and more intensively with their peers and relevant experts in a peer-to-peer format worldwide on solutions in different thematic areas.

This year Connective Cities again focuses intensively on the COVID-19 pandemic and its impact on municipalities. Instead of being limited to linear exchange formats, the second part of the Corona programme derives proven tools from the Connective Cities core programme and facilitates new approaches to promote a deeper municipal exchange of experiences. In compact learning processes, municipal actors jointly address current COVID-19-related topics - the goal here is the (further) development of project ideas and solutions for municipal challenges as well as the elaboration and dissemination of existing solution approaches. Building on the previous dynamics, challenges in connection with COVID-19 can thus be dealt with in greater depth and a practical manner.
