Urban Lab In Kiel

UrbCulturalPlanning’s next Urban Lab will take place in Kiel the 24th to 25th February, 2020.

The project partners have organized a two-day international Urban Lab on the theme creative bureaucracy. The aim of the Urban Lab is to explore opportunities for creating a more sustainable city. The two-day Urban Lab will address local actors from Kiel’s political and administrative departments, international participants and other interested such as city planners, artists, scientists, students and activists.

The Urban Lab is divided into two sections:


The first part of the Urban Lab in Kiel will focus on formulating strategic goals for a more sustainable city. These goals can be derived from the 17 SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals). In that addition, it should be specifically about the implementation of these formulated goals – both for the city of Kiel and cities in the Baltic Sea Region.

The Danish city planner and architect Tina Saaby will accompany this part of the lab.

2. HOW

The second part of the Urban Lab will deal with the concrete implementations of these goals and the question of what role creative bureaucracy plays in it. The second part is accompanied by the British urban researcher Charles Landry, who already has been working with the city planning of Kiel.

More information concerning the registration and programme will follow.
