27th November 2018
European City Dialogue

Topic: "Urban Biodiversity – Benefits for Inhabitants and Nature?"
Cities and towns provide particular conditions for plants and animals on the one hand. On the other hand, urban development also threats their habitats.
In Görlitz, already manifold green spaces, as parks or allotments, but also natural areas exist. A large number of brownfield sites, for example the area "Brautwiesenbogen", additionally provide the opportunity to gain growing awareness of the potentials of the diversity of plants, animals, and habitats in urban areas. The Event will be translated simultaneously in German and Polish.

Görlitz │ 5:00-6:30 pm │ IZS, Gottfried-Kiesow-Platz 1

"Quo vadis, Görlitz? Zukunftskongress!

What does the future hold for the city of Görlitz? What ideas and images concerning the future development of the city dominate among administrators, politicians, entrepreneurs and the civil society? What decisions will have to be taken today in order to allow for a long-term positive development?
These questions will be addressed during the “Zukunftskongress” on a participatory basis, underpinned by a scientific perspective on the development of medium-sized towns like Görlitz.
The “Zukunftskongress” is organized by the Aktionskreis für Görlitz e.V. in cooperation with the TRAWOS - Institut für Transformation Wohnen und soziale Raumentwicklung and the IZS - Interdisciplinary Centre for Ecological and Revitalizing Urban Transformation.
Venue: Campus Görlitz of the University of Applied Sciences Zittau/Görlitz
