    Transatlantic Core Group

    Connected Cities

    Cities and communities in the United States and Germany are confronted with similar challenges. They play a pivotal role when it comes to finding solutions to global problems, such as, for example, climate change, digitization or migration. Additionally, cities serve as laboratories for social innovation and testing new approaches.

    This is why the Transatlantic Core Group has created a bilateral working group called “Connected Cities.” Leaders from both countries aim to establish a transatlantic dialogue and to foster an exchange of best practices and ideas. Taking the sister cities of Hamburg and Chicago as a starting point, the Connected Cities team concentrates on mapping civic engagement in both cities digitally and on establishing a tandem project in order to match persons with similar interests, professions, and backgrounds.
