Civic participation, climate change, health, and mobility: many global problems are concentrated and intensified in urban areas. But this also makes cities a breeding ground for solutions to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) of the UN 2030 Agenda. Through our Denkraum event entitled “Good Life and Sustainable Cities 2030,” we, as a foundation, want to contribute our share.
The city as a place for solutions: During the Denkraum event, we want to dive deeply into the multifaceted dimensions of this topic. The focus on the Sustainable Development Goal #11 – “Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable” – provides a positive scenario for participants. We invite our guests to think outside the box.
How can we shape urban life in a participatory and resource-efficient way? How can businesses, investors, and society contribute to a “new economy” and thus to the transformation of conventional forms of administration, governance, and finance? What innovative ideas and business models are the key drivers? In short: What does Responsible Leadership look like with a view to the common good and life in sustainable cities?
