Kick-off of our new format "City Shapers"

December 2022

What does the future of our cities look like? How can we meet the major challenges of urban development together? These are the questions we are exploring in our new "Stadtgestalter" format, in which PANDION CEO Reinhold Knodel meets opinion leaders from politics and society for an intensive and controversial exchange on the topic of urban development.

The city hall of Tübingen was recently the setting for the first episode. Knodel´s discussion partner: Tübingen´s Lord Mayor Boris Palmer. Open, constructive and with just the right touch of argumentativeness, an exciting conversation developed. Among other things, there was a heated discussion about whether the public sector can solve the tight situation on the housing market better than the private housing industry, who determines prices on the housing market and which criteria decide who can live in the inner cities and who cannot. You can see the whole conversation in the video.
