In Detail

In a keynote speech, Nick Sohnemann showed what urban life will look like in 2030:

Citizens can participate in urban development projects using digital tools – all that’s missing is a bar or a daycare center. Rate it in the city’s app


AI will also change the cityscape. Garbage cans will be tracked by cameras and emptied when full. No more pointless waste.


Multimodal mobility will change the cityscape – in Hamburg, we will have a different composition of mobility hardware than in Rome or Dublin. Depending on the size of the city and the composition of the neighborhoods, there will be more bikes, public transport, or self-driving cars.


Neighborhoods will be interwoven – less separation between work, school, and work. The new buildings will be built sustainably and equipped with many multipurpose spaces.


The presentation was rounded off with an exciting live demo on the topic of cybersecurity – with the Flipper Zero.
