German Habitat forum: Urban Solutions

CityCube Berlin Messedamm 26, 14055 Berlin

Urbanisation is one of the defining phenomena of our time. Sustainable urban solutions will play a key role with a view to achieving both the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and international climate change targets over the next decades.

That is why the Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and the Land of Berlin (State of Berlin) will host the German Habitat Forum in Berlin  on 1 and 2 June 2016. The Forum will provide a platform for discussion on how to design sustainable solutions for cities in the future, and will look at the key aspects of 'mobility' and 'urban infrastructure'. 

The first day of the conference will be dedicated to People, Politics and  Practice, and will examine already existing solutions. The second day will be dedicated to looking at concepts and conclusions for the future of urban development.

In interactive and practice-oriented formats, German and international guests will discuss policy recommendations and implementation strategies under general headings such as:

  • Making use of the opportunuties offered by urbanisation; 
  • Developing and realising intergrated urban solutions; 
  • Making our cities good places to live;
  • Enabling ciites to become active development players; 

The international dialogue forum in Germany will offer participants the opportunity to exchange ideas and provide useful impulses ahead of the Habitat III World Conference – the United Nations Conference on Housing and Sustainable Urban Development – scheduled to take place in Quito, Ecuador, from 17 to 20 October 2016.
