The call for themes 2020 for German municipalities and German municipal companies closed on 30 November 2019 and will soon be evaluated. Connective Cities would like to thank all municipalities and municipal companies that participated by submitting a theme. Starting from mid-January Connective Cities will make the results of the evaluation public and will announce the selected themes and the respective host cities for international exchange of experiences starting from the second half of 2020 in Germany.
The thematic focus of regional learning processes with local practitioners is based on the concrete needs of cities as well as on the framework conditions of urbanization in the regions. Connective Cities has, on the basis of various analyses, identified the general thematic fields that are relevant for the respective region and are likely to meet with the interests of the cities and their stakeholders.
