DEMO:POLIS – Universal Declaration of Urban Rights
Handing over to Berlin politicians
Handing over of the "Berlin Urban Rights Chart" to Stefan Evers, Ellen Haußdörfer, Antje Kapek, Katrin Lompscher, Wolfram Prieß. Moderation: Wilfried Wang.
An Urban Parliament served as infrastructure to draft the Berlin Urban Rights Chart (UR_BER) in a series of five public parliamentary working sessions. Members of city initiatives and other experts were invited to debate a specific issue at each session, together with the public. The common aim was to establish new fundamentals for the use of Berlin’s public spaces, and to apply them in a collective UR_BER city map of alternative urban practices. In the final session, this UR_BER Chart with concrete demands is handed over to Berlin policy makers. Let’s make Berlin together!
The Urban Parliament is part of the project Universal Declaration of Urban Rights. It was conceieved by the collective Zuloark, and already performed in several European cities. The Berlin edition is curated by Julia Förster, with the support of Andreas Krüger.
This event is part of the programme of the exhibtion "DEMO:POLIS - The Right to Public Space".
