The aim of the seminar to understand and learn about the different challenges European regions are facing, e.g. integration and migration, social exclusion, demographic change, creative milieus, economic decline, shrinking cities and ecological renewal.
These are questions, the seminar is targeting. The city of Berlin is a hot spot for various regional developments. As a result several of these aspects will be discussed and explained at short excursions and day trips directly on examples in Berlin (e.g. ethnic businesses and the migration situation in Neukölln, the new developing zone Tempelhofer Feld). During seminar students present power point presentations in which selected developments or planning programs are shown and discussed on a regional example all over Europe (including e.g. the home regions of the participants).
