Metropolitan Field Trip Berlin
Cities in Transition organizes a four-day field trip to Berlin where you can meet local City Makers.
The City of Berlin’s turn of the century bankruptcy spurred a rise in local civic initiatives unlike any other European city. This outburst of creativity quickly granted Berlin with the sounding label of the Creative Capital of Europe. However, soon this delivered the desired effect of returning investment and a thriving tourism industry, with hipsters flocking the notorious club scene. In popular gentrifying districts such as Kreuzberg and Neukölln housing prices are on the rise, with the risk of displacing the artists and immigrant communities that contributed to its attractiveness in the first place.
