Sustainable Futures: 30 Tactics for 2030 / CityLAB / Berlin

The future is sustainable and inclusive! - Or is there a future at all? In times of rapidly advancing technologies and with a serious climate crisis ahead, the question of who shapes the future is becoming increasingly relevant. Yet all too often, citizen participation is lacking within this debate. In this workshop and at this event, we want to re-imagine what a sustainable future for Berlin and beyond could look like, and which first steps we can make to move towards this direction.
