Starting on 1 October, twenty bright minds from Germany and the United States will begin a transatlantic dialogue on how cities can address global challenges, while also democratizing urban spaces.
We are excited to announce our twenty New Urban Progress-Fellows! The cohort of next-generation leaders from Germany and the United States work on a broad range of issues, from climate change, to journalism, international relations, community organizing, financing and local business, data and tech, as well as city planning. From Berlin to San Francisco, the Fellows are engaging with some of the most pressing topics of our time. The New Urban Progress Fellowship will situate their work in urban contexts on both sides of the Atlantic and explore how cities can be actors that lead the way in building a more sustainable and equitable world.
The project is supported by the Transatlantic Program of the Federal Republic of Germany and funded by the European Recovery Program (ERP) of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy (BMWi).
