URBAN SESSIONS AT THE PROGRESSIVE GOVERNANCE SUMMIT
In the coming years, cities will be at the core of several crucial alliances - whether combating climate change internationally or acting as progressive hubs that uphold democratic values and institutions within national settings.
As part of the transatlantic project New Urban Progress, the Alfred Herrhausen Gesellschaft co-hosts the Urban Sessions at the Progressive Governance Summit 2022 on the 13th October in Berlin. In the sessions, urban and transatlantic leaders discuss how we can build forward-thinking alliances within and between cities.

The Progressive Governance Summit 2022: Joining Forces is organized by our partner the Berlin-based Think Tank Das Progressive Zentrum to enforce building alliances and drive change for progressive politics. Learn more about the summit here.
Together with Das Progressive Zentrum and Progressive Policy Institute in the United States, we launched spring 2020 the project ‘New Urban Progress to rejuvenate the transatlanctic dialogue. The project compares metropolitan regions on both sides of the Atlantic that have emerged as hubs of public innovation and collaborative problem-solving. The results will be used as frameworks to build inclusive, innovative, digital, and diverse cities. New Urban Progress is dialogue-based: we engage German and US-American young leaders in a conversation on contemporary social, cultural and economic phenomena present in post-industrial multicultural societies.
