Berlin Brandenburg 2040
BB2040 is a collaborative platform project exploring #transformation processes in Berlin Brandenburg from the perspective of infrastructures. We will invite students, colleagues, collaborators and guests to contribute their knowledge, ideas and speculations on how infrastructures as the glue of urbanization will (need to) change and reconfigure in light of global and local challenges to provide for a livable future in 2040.
BB2040 investigates infrastructures as a lever to facilitate transformation. Infrastructures can combine future oriented thinking of uncertain futures with concrete, conceivable and negotiable realities of the present day.
The project devises a framework for a creative process involving multiple participants aiming to build a bridge between the vast systemic knowledge about present day challenges and planetary risks, policy processes and global agendas such as SDGs that provide references of what needs to be changed in the future, and specific conditions, resources and actors within Berlin and Brandenburg that will need to be involved in transformative change.
Berlin Brandenburg 2040 was initiated by the Habitat Unit in cooperation with Projekte International and provides an open stage and platform for multiple contributions of departments and students of the Technical University Berlin and beyond. The project is funded by the Robert Bosch Foundation.
