Tilman Buchholz is the Deputy Head of the Urban Development Division of the German Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation, Building and Nuclear Safety. He has a vast experience in partnerships on urban development between the public and private sectors in Germany and dedicates a significant part of his activity to the European collaboration for the development of cities.
The vision he promotes is an integrated one and relies on the premise that a European city is compact, mixed and diverse. Moreover, the actors involved in the sustainable development of a region are not only the state, the counties or communes, but also the civil society, the economy and the academic environment. Therefore, Mr. Buchholz will talk about enhancing and developing cities to become engines of economic activity and investment magnets, about the concept of innovative cities and the criteria for an urban development policy of the future.
