The seminar "City and Water – Dhaka/Berlin" is going to take place on 26 until 28 August 2007 and is fruit of the co-operation between Goethe-Institute Dhaka, Habitat Forum Berlin and MBZ/Alumni Bangladesh.

It is structured in three independent blocks, of which each will be treated on one day: ARCHITECTURE, HYDROGEOLOGY and PUBLIC SPHERE. Each of the three days is concentrated on one of the three topics and involves a guest from Germany and experts from Bangladesh, approaching an audience of scholars, researchers, students, activists etc.

In the next days a poster with the finalised programme will be ready. And we hope to invite a wide audience of architects, architecture students, different exprets, sociologists, artists, environmental activists, etc. to discuss with us.
