On Tuesday, December 13th, we sent the last course participants in 2016 on their way towards a new and sustainable urban agenda. Four weeks of intensive course work, but also coping with the challenges (cold temperatures) and enjoying the benefits (Christmas cake and sweets) at this time of the year in Germany are over.
