Please join us for the first online event of the TCR Talks Series on Transforming City Regions, which will take place in November the 17th at 17:00 (CET). Our guests are Mr. Thomas Stellmach and Ms. Aurelija Matulevičiūtė from a Berlin-based urban planning and design company TSPA Berlin. The speakers will present their recent project entitled Vision for Berlin-Brandenburg 2070.
It is hard to predict the political, cultural and technological developments in the next 50 years. However, some of the challenges we are facing nowadays will go far beyond the next 50 years. We are certain that the climate is changing, as well as that Brandenburg region will become warmer and drier. We know that this will have consequences for food production and biodiversity and that structures in industry, agriculture and energy management will have to adapt. Landscape, water and biosystems will be affected by these changes too. Landscapes of Differences suggests initiating a long-term transformation process of these systems to ensure a resilient and productive future for Brandenburg and Berlin. This transformation creates the framework in which the lives of citizens in their social and economic facets can develop freely and are future-proof. Starting with ecosystems in Brandenburg, project offers to look at the nature first and explore a relationship between natural environments and urban fabric, as well as balancing its protection and utilisation.
