Utopian Encounters

In the debate, about how demographic changes will affect urban social contexts in the future a demand for more intergenerations encounters and exchange is prevalent. The workshop asked, if and how actors already deal with this demand in reality. Therefore, practitioneers representing successful and visionary projects of intergenerational exchange in Berlin were invited to present and discuss their experiences and visions. In addition, the experts participated in a co-design workshop including the regular visitors of the BMW Guggenheim Lab. In four groups participants critically analyzed urban contexts on different scales and collected and documented their ideas for future concepts. Results were documented by four mind-mapping experts which were attended to each group. (Concept and Moderation: Stefan Göllner and Malte Bergmann)
