The Fed­eral Con­gress is the cent­ral forum for urban devel­op­ment policy in Ger­many. Since the cre­ation of the National Urban Devel­op­ment Policy in 2007, the event has taken place annu­ally at dif­fer­ent loc­a­tions and deals with con­tent, goals and cur­rent issues of urban devel­op­ment policy in accord­ance with the Leipzig Charter decided by the respons­ible min­is­ters of the EU member states in 2007 and renewed in 2020. The part­ners of the National Urban Devel­op­ment Policy are the Fed­eral Min­istry of Hous­ing, Urban Devel­op­ment and Con­struc­tion (BMWSB), the Con­fer­ence of Build­ing Min­is­ters (Baumin­ister­kon­fer­enz), the German Asso­ci­ation of Cities (Deutscher Städtetag) and the German Asso­ci­ation of Cities and Muni­cip­al­it­ies (Deutscher Städte- und Gemeindebund).

The con­gress brings together a broad pro­fes­sional audi­ence of around 1,000 par­ti­cipants from sci­ence, polit­ics and prac­tice, thus affirm­ing the cooper­a­tion between the local, state and fed­eral levels and the col­lab­or­at­ive nature of the National Urban Devel­op­ment Policy.
