IKM meets in Hannover Braunschweig Göttingen Wolfsburg

German Metropolitan regions meet in Einbeck

The autumn meeting took place in Einbeck on 24 and 25 October 2019 at the invitation of the Hannover Braunschweig Göttingen Wolfsburg Metropolitan Region. The focus was on the topic of “Europe”, here the IKM wants to actively contribute to the upcoming updates of the Leipzig Charter and the Territorial Agenda.

The metropolitan regions were welcomed by Mayor Dr. Sabine Michalek and Lothar Meyer-Mertel (Managing Director PS.Speicher), who spoke about the special challenges facing local politics in rural areas and about the operation and marketing of tourist lighthouse projects such as the PS.Speicher away from large metropolises.

The supporting programme included a test ride on the electric cargo bike from Volkswagen Commercial Vehicles.
