Designing new Event Formats for Town Twinning


Town twinning and cooperations between urban communities from different cities need active care and commitment. In order to provide people of the respective partnerships with exciting meeting occasions, meaningful topics as well as shared spaces of experience and exchange, there is always a great demand for exciting, intense and fruitful event formats - no matter if you are planning for small or large groups.

In our event-workshop you will learn,
> how to design exciting bilateral online- and offline-event formats,
> how to adress and overcome special challenges of such formats,

> how up-to-date formats look like and how to produce them.

You will also benefit from experiences and format ideas of other participants.
You will also have the chance to develop new formats together with other participants or to adapt them for your purposes.
