Network in Germany

Our network

Building on its pool of experts, the German network of Connective Cities brings together German urban practitioners who are willing to share their technical expertise with their international colleagues and exchange their experiences in Germany and in the world regions. Exchange formats are personal network meetings and workshops as well as virtual webinars.



Our fokus

Connective Cities in Germany

The focus of our work changes annually and is based on the needs of German cities as well as partner cities worldwide. They range from waste management and climate adaptation, to inclusion and dealing with migration, to liveable neighbourhood development and low carbon mobility concepts.
