Towards a sustainable and just city region? Looking at Berlin, London and Paris

Tageskonferenz an der TU Berlin am Freitag, den 29. November 2013 // 9:30 bis 17:30 Uhr

Die Forschungsgruppe Think Berl!n möchten die Frage nach der nachhaltigen und gerechten Stadt(-Entwicklung) in der kommenden Tageskonferenz an der TU Berlin aufwerfen und nimmt hierfür die momentan laufende Entwicklung des Berliner Stadtentwicklungskonzept 2030 in den Blick. Gleichzeitig soll aber auch der Blick auf andere Großstädte Europas erfolgen, so dass durch einen internationaler Vergleich mit London und Paris weitere nützliche Erkenntnisse gewonnen werden können. Hierzu sind eine Vielzahl an nationalen und internationalen Expert_Innen eingeladen, die Diskussion zu bereichern:

Berlin is currently in the process of developing a new spatial development strategy – the Stadtentwicklungs-konzept 2030 (StEK 2030). Other plans and policies to shape the growing metropolitan region are also well under way, such as the new housing strategy and a new strategy of how to deal with municipal real estate. Many of these policies have been influenced by civil society stakeholders who demand a more sustainable development of the city, both in terms of climate change and socially. Extensive public participation processes have been launched to come up with development strategies, which will be perceived as ‘just’ while at the same time supporting Berlin’s economic growth. The conference will discuss the proposed strategies and participatory approaches and whether they are as ‘just’ and ‘sustainable’ as promised. It will look at similar proposals in London and Paris and explore what these new approaches mean regarding current debates on governance, localism or sustainable urban development.
