CITYMAKERS China – Germany
Putting ‘liveable city’ at its core, ‘CITYMAKERS China – Germany seeks to connect, grow and enable a community of innovative citymakers between Germany and China. The intention of the program is to complement the existing Sino-German cooperation landscape in the field of urbanisation by emphasizing social innovation, culture and creativity as cross-cutting themes fundamental for sustainable development and in addition to technological innovation. Architects, artists, citizens or municipal city leaders: with a 360 degree approach the network equally welcomes players from institutional, government, entrepreneurial and independent backgrounds.
The concrete offers: knowledge through ongoing interviews and mappings; yearly CITYMAKER Meet-Ups; an incubator supporting three Sino-German teams and their projects on ‘Urban Farming’, the ‘Future of Housing’ and ‘Heritage & Identity’; last but not least a thriving (WeChat) community of trusted creative people available to design urban innovation or city-to-city projects.
