15th Federal Congress on National Urban Development Policy
Shaping Transformation – A New Chapter for Urban Resilience

14th to 16th September 2022 at STATION-Berlin

Welcome!

We appreciate your interest in the 15th Federal Congress on National Urban Development Policy, which will once again take place live on site after a long digital phase.

We will get together to discuss current approaches and strategies for urban development policy, and to progress ideas for sustainable and integrated development of urban and rural areas at national, European and international level. The programme of the Congress will also include excursions and events organised by various partners, as well as a project fair.

We will also show the main programme in plenary as a livestream and later as video on demand in the media library. There you will also find the recordings of the on-site arenas at a later date.

    The European funding programme URBACT supports cities in the participatory development and implementation of integrated urban development concepts and fosters a practice-oriented exchange with municipalities from Europe. A new call for URBACT networks will be launched in October 2022. The National URBACT Contact Point and experienced URBACT practitioners will provide information on the programme, the application process and funding opportunities. The call for the new funding period focuses on climate, gender equality and digitalisation. However, URBACT is open to all topics of urban development.

    A people-centred approach to urban resilience: social cohesion, women and the city, sustainable planning and building of temporary housing for liveable neighbourhoods
    Federal Ministry for Housing, Urban Development and Building and Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) GmbH

    Urban resilience from a people-centered point of view includes a consideration of social and cultural issues. The topic of resilience as it is typically considered, includes measures such as climate adaptation and mitigation measures for increased drought, rainfall, and so on. However, the people-centered approach requires ensuring that no person or category of people is left behind in the process of urban transformation. Three sub-topics will be considered in particular: social cohesion, women (and safety) in the city, and sustainable planning and building for temporary housing in liveable neighbourhoods.

  • 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm

Breakout areas running simultaneously
Block 1

Breakout area I: “Shaping sustainable, resilient inner cities for the future”

Moderation: Gabriele Kautz, Federal Ministry for Housing, Urban Development and Building and Bernd Düsterdiek, Association of German Cities

Shaping the city center for the future – climate-friendly and resilient. As historically evolved places of identification, city centers are of particular social, economic, political and cultural importance. With their dense development, the location on rivers and the clash of different uses, city centers are usually particularly affected by the effects of structural and climate change (extreme weather events). Dealing with these changes is a pillar towards more climate-friendly, resilient and thus sustainable inner cities. The focus of the arena is on innovative, integrated approaches from municipalities that have already set out to successfully meet these challenges.

Breakout area II: Social resilience: affordable, climate-adapted housing

Moderation: Hilmar von Lojewski, German Association of Towns and Municipalities

Shortage of materials, shortage of craftsmen, rising prices and despite this, residential buildings have to make a contribution to achieving our climate protection goals. In the first part, the arena would like to take a look at the building stock and explore the question of how affordable and climate-adapted housing can be pursued economically. The second part will focus on social resilience and present how it can be implemented in practice and what conditions are required for this. The two blocks will each include an impulse and practical examples as a basis for discussion.

Breakout area III: Resilient urban development: Health in urban planning

Moderation: Moderation: Stefan Bräunling, German Collaborative Network for Equity in Health and Anne Keßler, Federal Ministry for Housing, Urban Development and Building

Municipalities are confronted with global changes that affect the local level, including climate change and pandemics in particular. Areas with social challenges are hit disproportionately hard. Social, economic, urban planning and environmental problems are concentrated and overlapping there, leading to high health risks and health burdens for the people living there: Increased traffic and noise pollution, greater negative environmental impacts due to extreme weather events, and higher health risks due to the socioeconomic status of residents accumulate to create complex hazards.

In urban neighborhoods as well as in rural districts with social challenges, there is a great need for action in terms of resilient urban development!

How can the goal of equal health opportunities be realized in the future in the face of further worsening conditions in disadvantaged urban and rural districts? What challenges must we expect in the coming years? How can cooperation and a networked approach between the fields of action of urban development policy and health promotion and prevention succeed? What contribution can the urban development program “Social Cohesion” make to the design of healthy neighborhoods?

These questions will be discussed with experts from science, politics and practice.

Breakout area IV: Digitalisation: smart solutions for cities and regions

Moderation: Alexa von Busse, Journalist

Data sovereignty, openness, transparency – these are just some of the promises of Digital Urban Twins, which are considered innovative tools for integrated urban development of the future. The first part will focus on the “Connected Urban Twins” project, a smart city model project of the BMWSB: Hamburg, Leipzig and Munich are jointly developing Digital Urban Twins and driving forward the transfer of knowledge. In a second part, use cases will be explored in more detail with other municipalities. Areas of use include e.g. climate adaptation, village development or the support of participation processes.

Breakout area V: Paving the way towards climate-neutral cities (en)

Moderation: Martin Grisel, European Urban Knowledge Network (EUKN)

The EU Mission on „100 Climate Neutral and Smart Cities“ sets a clear goal to achieve climate neutrality for the 100 selected European cities by 2030. Less than 8 years separate the 100 selected cities – including 9 cities from Germany – from this ambitious goal. The Arena will serve as a platform to explore potential measures and strategies for the cities and will also be the kick-off of the national process to support cities on the way towards climate-neutrality. The event will put a focus on connecting the EU Mission with the Common Good concept of the New Leipzig Charter.

16 September 2022

10.00 am
Excursions in and around Berlin

  • Tour 1: Berlin TXL – Reuse of the former Tegel Airport (DE/EN)

    Organizer: Tegel Projekt GmbH, Berlin / Senate Department for Urban Development, Building and Housing for the Federal State of Berlin

    Meeting place: Rotes Rathaus, Rathausstraße 15, 10178 Berlin
    > 09:00 am: Start of the german tour (Return approx 01:00 pm)
    > 10:00 am: Start of the english tour (Return approx. 02:00 pm)
    The number of participants is limited to 60.

    The former Berlin-Tegel Airport (Berlin TXL) is one of the largest and ambitious urban transformation projects in Europe. BERLIN TXL comprises the (1) URBAN TECH REPUBLIC, a research and industrial park for urban technologies (with potential for 20,000 new jobs and over 5,000 students), and (2) SCHUMACHER QUARTIER, an ecologically and socially innovative district being built with 100% timber construction technology, yielding over 5,000 apartments for more than 10,000 people.

    The State of Berlin has commissioned Tegel Projekt GmbH with the development and management of Berlin TXL. The state-owned business employs 80 people. Their tasks include planning for the construction of buildings and for the technical, transport and energy infrastructure, construction, and site management, as well as space marketing and communicating with the general public about the project.

  • Tour 2: Templehof Airport (THF) – Old and broken or diamond in the rough? Why Tempelhof Airport is a treasure worth lifting!

    Organizer: Tempelhof Projekt GmbH, Berlin / Senate Department for Urban Development, Building and Housing for the Federal State of Berlin

    Meeting place: Visitor Centre CHECK-IN, Platz d. Luftbrücke 5, C2, 12101 Berlin

    > 10:00 am: tour in german
    > 10:30 am: tour in german
    > 11:00 am: tour in english
    > 11:30 am: tour in english
    The number of participants is limited to 15 people per tour.

    Please note: as a construction site will be walked on, sturdy footwear is required.

    Today, former Tempelhof Airport – once the largest contiguous building in the world – is owned by the City of Berlin. While not being the largest building anymore, its Val-layered 1230-meter-long Arc of Hangars and its rich history and diverse architecture are still impressive.

    Tempelhof Airport, including the monumental building, is a listed ensemble since 1995. Flight operations ended in 2008, leaving behind one of Berlin’s largest conversion sites. The cities plan is to convert the landmark into a location for art, culture and creative industries.

    During the tour Tempelhof Projekt offers insights into the building, its history and the opportunities and challenges of the regeneration project. The tour will focus on the development strategy, current (construction)projects and highlight what already makes THF one of the most exciting locations in Berlin.

  • Tour 3: The Town Hall Complex in Berlin Kreuzberg as a model for cooperative urban development

    Organizer: S.T.E.R.N./Die Stadtentwickler.Bundesverband

    Meeting place: Info container at the corner of Mehringdamm/Obentrautstraße, 10963 Berlin

    10:00 am: tour in german
    The number of participants is limited to 60.

    The tour leads through the 4.7 ha city hall block in the heart of Kreuzberg, which is being developed in a community-oriented and cooperative way into a new urban quarter with approx. 470 new rental flats.

    The listed former Garde-Dragoner barracks will not only provide space for affordable housing, but also for commerce, social infrastructure and community uses. On the basis of a cooperation agreement, the district and senate administration, WBM Wohnungsbaugesellschaft Berlin-Mitte mbH, BIM Berliner Immobilienmanagement GmbH as well as civil society actors and delegates from the FORUM Rathausblock are working together in the networking meeting Rathausblock as a model.

  • Tour 4: Haus der Statistik – Model project for cooperative urban development (DE/EN)

    Organizer: ZUsammenKUNFT Berlin eG, Berlin / Senate Department for Urban Development, Building and Housing for the Federal State of Berlin

    Meeting place: Werkstatt Haus der Statistik, Karl-Marx-Allee 1, 10178 Berlin

    11:00 am: tour in german and english
    The number of participants is limited to 60.

    After more than 10 years of vacancy, the Haus der Statistik site in Berlin is being developed for the common good – jointly by civil society and the public sector. In the existing building and through approx. 65,000 m² of new construction, space is being created for art, culture, social affairs and education, affordable housing, as well as a new city hall for the Mitte district and administrative uses.

    The co-production of the cooperative Koop 5 is an invitation not to think in terms of responsibilities and demarcations. The site is a projection surface for a desirable urban future that develops new qualities: social, ecological, economic, cultural and institutional.

    Alternative approaches to planning processes through creative formats of participation, self-organization of pioneer uses, and shared responsibility for public resources through public-civic partnerships are three manifestations of co-production that will be examined and discussed in more detail during the excursion.
