Online expert discussion: Effects of digitisation on cities on November 30th

On Monday, 30 November 2020, at 7.30 pm, the Clever House and the City of Oldenburg are organising a digital expert discussion on the effects and consequences of increasing digitisation on (working) life in Oldenburg.

In times of contact restriction, digitisation plays a major role in the world of work and everyday life and is driving the development towards more home office and digital communication faster, also here in Oldenburg. New needs arise from the many possibilities of mobile working and the way we move and work will change permanently. Many new things are being tried out in various areas of everyday life and there is an increasing search for digital solutions to current problems. This will also have an impact on how we will live together in Oldenburg in the future and how a city has to be designed in order to best exploit these new possibilities to the benefit of the population.

How digitisation is changing life in Oldenburg
How can a city like Oldenburg look under these conditions? How will we move around in the city of the future and live and work together? What will remain after the crisis and establish itself in the long term? And what opportunities and challenges will arise for social interaction?

These are the questions Dr. Reiner Fageth (Member of the Board of Management of CEWE Stiftung & Co. KGaA) and Dr.-Ing. Frank Egon Pantel (lecturer at Jade University) will be discussing. Friederike Hackmann (Economic Development of the City of Oldenburg) will moderate the discussion.

The digital expert discussion will be implemented as a virtual format with the video conference platform GoToMeeting.

Interested parties can register to take part in the discussion until Thursday, 26 November. Registration for the free event is now possible by e-mail to or by telephone on 0441 99873398. All interested parties are invited to take part in the event online, to join in the discussion and to ask questions. No special software is required.
