We bring together politics, administration, civil society, and local businesses in Municipal Development Councils, cultivating collaborative solutions for complex societal challenges. Our firm belief is that inclusive and sustainable development is best achieved when all interest groups engage in dialogue and collaboratively shape ideas.
Currently, we are supporting five German municipalities in the implementation of Municipal Development Councils. In In five additional municipalities concrete recommendations for action have been successfully developed and presented to the local political decision-makers.
What strategies can be employed to achieve a just green transition? How do we tackle the repercussions of the pandemic and navigate migration and refugee movements? The pressing challenges we face require creative and inclusive strategies for sustainable development. In this endeavor, democratic structures must not only address societal polarization but also underpin the success of these transformative processes.
Municipalities play a pivotal role in this context. They directly face these challenges, as diverse interests and needs emerge as conflicts within their communities. Therefore, they require strategies that are not only applicable today but also uphold justice for future generations.
To support local communities in tackling these challenges, we've developed Municipal Development Councils. These councils work collaboratively to devise solutions for complex issues that are both inclusive and rooted in community engagement.
