    A global investigation of cities in the 2020s

The growing cities across the world are each a microcosm encapsulating the global challenges of our time: resource scarcity and infrastructure, social justice and education. How people shape their cities will have a major impact on their future lives, which is why the Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft’s Cities programme promotes impactful solutions that foster integrative urban governance.

In various cooperations and different projects we support urban planning and development processes by initiating and leading relevant discourses. Through experimentation and interdisciplinary networking we aim to enable different perspectives on cities and to allow for new impulses. In Europe, Africa or the USA - we support cities in finding and fulfilling their role as international players.
