In 2022, a meeting of the ministers responsible for urban development took place for the first time in the G7 context. With the planned meeting, the German G7 Presidency sent a signal to address the growing importance of the challenges associated with urban development. As part of the G7 ministerial meeting, which took place on 13 September 2022 in the state capital Potsdam, a communiqué on sustainable urban development was adopted. The communiqué was drawn up in the first half of 2022 by delegates from the G7 member states. In a multistage participation process, national as well as international stakeholders were involved.
PROPROJEKT supported the Federal Ministry for Housing, Urban Development and Building together with Büro Kaufmann in designing and controlling the preparatory process, carrying out the national dialogue formats and in designing the content of the communiqué.
