Mr. Best will share with the audience his experience in urban and spatial planning, by means of the best-practice example of Essen. Located in the heart of the Ruhr Metropolis, the city of Essen offers numerous cultural, scientific and economic highlights. World Heritage Zollverein, University of Duisburg-Essen, headquarters of leading German companies or Messe Essen shape the face of the city. And Essen continues to evolve: with the university quartier/ Green Center Essen, attractive housing projects on the Sea of Baldeney and the Ruhr, with the waterside district in Essen-Altendorf or the development of the Kreuzeskirch quarter in the city center, the city established itself as a national trendsetter.
