Event description

Description

Following the success of last year’s events in various German cities, The Sooner Now continues its tour in cooperation with the urban design magazine IDEAT. In 2018, The Sooner Now will go on to build on conversations about urban trends and projects with local creative communities in Hamburg, Berlin, Duesseldorf and Cologne.

On June 7th, The Sooner Now will launch with its first event in Hamburg examining the meaning of home and belonging in the harbor city. Focusing on personal stories and passion projects, the afternoon event will discuss ideas and have a problem-solving approach for a better urban life.

A distinguished panel will be joined by the audience to debate a number of issues: How does a sense of belonging come about in times of endless mobility? How does a new district like Hamburg’s HafenCity come to life? What value does neighborship have and how can we welcome newcomers?

Invited speakers:
Benjamin Jürgens (Refugee Canteen)
Ellen Blumenstein (HafenCity Curator)
Eva Becker (Urban-X)
Tim Hupe (Architect)
Moderator: Dorothea Heintze (Journalist)

When: 07.06.2018, 17:00 - 20:00
Where: 25hours Hotel HafenCity
The panel discussion will be held in German.

The Sooner Now is an initiative by MINI and Freunde von Freunden that functions as a platform featuring exceptional visions for the future. Connected by the desire to understand, reflect and shape the developments in urban life, The Sooner Now regards itself as a forum for continual dialogue and inspiration. Focused on personal stories and passionate projects, the initiative goes beyond the physicality of the hosting cities and events, instead opening up paths of joint participation in shaping a better life in the city.
