Local Data and Global Ideas

So-called citymakers, the actors involved in collaborative processes of urban development, are increasingly using technology and data to support their efforts. Despite justified criticism of digitalization in cities today, it is clear that data and technology are expediting citymaking processes; at the same time, said processes may also contribute to more equitable urban data and technology governance.

Citymaking with Narratives

Storytelling is becoming increasingly important for citymaking. But what exactly are so-called narratives and what possibilities arise from working with them? In this podcast, three guests from Bonn, Hamburg and Berlin are getting down to the essence of storytelling.

Mit Narrativen Stadt machen

Geschichtenerzählen wird immer wichtiger fürs Stadtmachen. Doch worum geht es bei sogenannten Narrativen eigentlich genau und welche Möglichkeiten ergeben sich durch die Arbeit mit ihnen? In diesem Podcast gehen drei Gäste aus Bonn, Hamburg und Berlin dem Geschichtenerzählen auf den Grund.

Verlieren Städte an Bedeutung?

Antworten zur Zukunft großer Stadtregionen verlangen komplexe Querschnittsbetrachtungen. Städte verlieren lohnintensive Industrien und standardisierbare Dienstleistungen, übernehmen angesichts globaler Digitalisierung aber auch neue Funktionen als Magneten komplexen Wissens.

Vanishing Cities?

The paper starts from the observation that no single firm, nor any research institute nor any city region alone is capable of generating top level knowledge in the various scientific areas. Knowledge is conceptualized as a bundle of elements that organizations must combine in one location or via digital networks.

Sustainable (Post-)Pandemic Cities?

For over a year, the COVID-19 pandemic is preoccupying scientists, politicians and each and every one of us in our professional and private lives. In this process, the spatial implications of the crisis soon became clear: named in terms like social distancing or the uneven affectedness of COVID-19 in different neighbourhoods.
