UrbCulturalPlanning next Urban Lab will take place in Kiel the 24th to 25th February 2020. The Heinrich Böll Foundation Schleswig-Holstein has organized a two-day international Urban Lab on the theme creative bureaucracy. The aim of the Urban Lab is to identify the possibilities for develop a more sustainable city of Kiel. The two-day international lab is held in German and English language.

We warmly welcome urbanists and city planners, artists, researchers and academics, students, community organizers, politicians and activists to explore the key aspects of taking an art and cultural perspective in urban strategies and practice.

The Urban Lab ist divided into two parts:



will focus on strategic goal setting and planning – from vision to implementation. The aim is to practically show how to deduce the SDGs in a manner, that they lead to clear strategic goals (as an example for the City of Kiel).

TINA SAABY will guide through the first day, from vision to implementation, and share her knowledge, from having been a partner in her own office, WITRAZ Architects, from being the vice president for the Danish Architectural Association, from being a jury member in more than 80 competitions, from having been a visiting professor, censor and having taught at different universities - and from being the city architect in Copenhagen 2010-2019.


will look at how well the City of Kiel functions and explore what kinds of creativities are needed to implement its strategic goals. The contradiction of the term „creative bureaucracy“ will be unravelled.

The aim is to assess how well Kiel is doing in the context of the 5 principles expressed in its 2042 vision and its intention to fulfil the 17 UN‘s SDG goals. This demands creativity and imagination and we will assess Kiel across a number of criteria.

CHARLES LANDRY will mentor he second day. Charles is author, speaker and international adviser on the future of cities.
