Co-Design-Projektgruppe "SDGs and cities"

Cities provide solutions to mitigate and adapt to Global Climate Change and also play an important role in implementing the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

In order to learn from the past und to reveal the current needs of the implementation of the SDGs, the project aims at analysing the challenges, experiences, success factors and obstacles of previous efforts of a sustainable urban development in German cities.

Within the project scientists and representatives of urban politics and development, will exchange experiences and knowledge. The results of the exchange feed back into the DKN Future Earth working group “Urban Sustaina-bility Transformations” and shall lead to a research agenda, that lists the open research questions.
