Connective Cities
NEWSLETTER - EDITION No. 30, February 2020

Dear readers,

 

The year 2020 has started with many new hopes worldwide to find innovative and good solutions for the challenges of this planet, be it climate change, poverty or health issues. Strong Global Cooperation seems to be more important than ever and we are very glad, that our program also has a role in connecting global players and practitioners!

Our programme has started with an intensive review, brainstorm and planning workshop in Bonn and is now looking forward to many interesting events in 2020. Here we give you a preview of what you can expect.

In addition to this, we will set up in all regions new features for urban practitioners to link up to each other, exchange their experiences and good practices and to quickly get support in development of new ideas from their peers on regional and on global level.

We hope you will be part of some of these events and will enjoy to connect and exchange,

Your Connective Cities Team
