City Zeitgeist : RSUA Study Trip to Hamburg - 13th to 16th June 2019

13 June 2019

RSUA is organising a Study Trip to Germany’s second city Hamburg from 13th to 16th June 2019.  The trip is taking the theme of “Schiffe und Ziegel” or ships and bricks and Hamburg’s status as a port city which is redolent of Belfast.  Hamburg’s urban planning has dealt with and built upon the scars left after the industrial revolution.  

Hamburg have delegated land on the new HafenCity development and have used it as a catalyst to steer the city and provide places for people to live (7000 new affordable homes), study (schools and university), work (new office spaces and media hubs) and visit the city (tourism boost- elbphilharmonie), in a model which could inform development in Belfast and Northern Ireland.

As places will be limited those who register an interest will get first refusal.  We are aiming to keep the cost below £500.  Please register your interest by 8th February 2019 by contacting Julia Leaker on julia@rsua.org.uk or 028 9032 3760. Registration of interest is free and does not commit you to going.
