  1. 1. 9am Friday 18th – 5pm Sunday 20th November 2011 in Berlin, Germany Many of us are leading transformative initiatives in our cities... We are working in civil society, business, government, culture and the arts, some of us across sectors and organizations. We strive to improve the well-being and sustainability of our communities and places of work. We are creating and connecting movements for the common good in new and collaborative ways. We are drawn into this space because we feel the possibility of a different way of living and working together. We feel the possibility and have had glimpses of the experience, that a different future is possible. We are aware that we can make this „Public Hubbing“ (in front of the Reichstag, Berlin/Mitte) happen in our lives. Berlin can in many ways be seen as a laboratory for change, providing spaces for a wide range of experiments in creating urban communities, connecting locally and translocally in order to address local and global challenges such as climate change, migration or an ageing society. Throughout its history, the city has undergone a series of remarkable changes, not least the peaceful transformation in 1989, when it became a crystallization point for a new world order. Today, people from all over the world move to Berlin, searching for orientation, inspiration and visions. New manifestations of democracy, civil-participation and cohabitation spread out to world from here, and contribute to shaping ideas of future cities – may they be metropoles or provincial towns.
