Working Group of Berlin-Brandenburg Cities 2019

On 8 August 2019, the working group of Berlin-Brandenburg municipalities and the city of Frankfurt Oder hosted the event “Future Cities”. Mayors of municipalities in Brandenburg discussed in plenary and in workshops how to collaborate on sustainable urban development. The topics discussed included local energy transitions.

Prof Lowitzsch of European University Viadrina (EUV) led a workshop on the role of municipalities in decentralised energy systems and used the occasion to present the SCORE project. The administrations’ representatives shared thoughts and provided constructive feedback on the project. This helped us to get a better picture of municipalities’ needs when joining the SCORE follower city network.
