Sum­mit in Düs­sel­dorf | Kon­feren­zpro­gramm

The City of Düs­sel­dorf is hon­ored to be the host of the Sec­ond Inter­na­tion­al May­ors Sum­mit on Liv­ing Togeth­er, which will take place from August 30 to Sep­tem­ber 1. The sum­mit will include numer­ous events and activ­i­ties, rang­ing from rep­re­sen­ta­tive recep­tions such as the sign­ing of the Gold­en Book by each head of del­e­ga­tion to inter­ac­tive work­shops, in which may­ors will dis­cuss the cur­rent chal­lenges of liv­ing togeth­er in metrop­o­lis­es. The sum­mit will end on Sun­day with the offi­cial open­ing of the Fes­ti­val of Democ­ra­cy — a civ­il ini­tia­tive to cel­e­brate one hun­dred years of Ger­man democ­ra­cy. The five work­shops that may­ors will par­tic­i­pate in on Sat­ur­day are cen­tered on the fol­low­ing top­ics:
