BERLIN City Exchange 2022!

Sign up here to take part in this year's EdiCitNet City Exchange with Berlin, Germany.

Berlin (3.75 million inhabitants) is the capital and biggest city of Germany located in the east of the country. As a multi-ethnic and multi-functional city, Berlin is a magnet for people and business, a city that is growing and changing. Shaping the future of Berlin as a growing green metropolis is a task that involves taking into account social, economic and environmental issues.

Berlin is the only EdiCitNet city with the hybrid role of a Front Runner City and a Follower City. As a Front Runner City, Berlin is developing a Living Lab on two sites – a former cemetery and a former agricultural enterprise – together with the EdiCitNet partner Prinzessinnengarten/Nomadisch Grün gGmbH, who have a lot of experience in community gardening. As a Follower City, Berlin will take the opportunity offered by the Masterplan process to develop new and enhance existing Edible City Solutions. 

The goal of both interventions – the Masterplan and the Living Lab – is to support socially disadvantaged neighbourhoods, to promote social cohesion and to improve quality of life in the city of Berlin.
