Cosmopolitan Habitat I International Research Dialogue

Cosmopolitan Habitat is a dialogue for a new paradigm in urbanism between Germany and Southern Europe: conceptual models, urban strategies and spatial practices of the Open and Inclusive City. As international dialogue towards a new urbanistic paradigm and operative actions, the Cosmopolitan Habitat, aims to sharpen our understanding of current innovations in urban policies and urban planning. In the last years, innovative approaches to respond to the challenges of migration, climate change, and of openness in focus on cities have been developed in Southern Europe and in Germany. Combined with the aim to strengthen urban economies and to make cities and their territorial networks again places of shared and com- mon futures, this led to new sorts of urban strategies and new ways to co-create urban change.
