Philipp Bouteiller presents the urban tech republic Berlin TXL
Ecosummit TV: The existing airport Tegel keeps on running and the opening date and budget of the new airport remain a big mystery. However, Philipp and his team already have a plan for the future use of Berlin TXL. The urban tech republic shall be a centre for urban technologies and the companies making them. As cities are so important when it comes to consuming resources and creating wealth, we all agree that citizens should work hard on the smart green city transition. Inventing and producing new urban solutions within the city boundary is a beautiful idea and makes a lot of sense. Philipp has a deep passion for attracting smart green industries to Berlin and will be happy to talk to small and big companies about relocating. The conversion of an old airport into a new urban tech republic will take one generation. We just hope that it will start soon.
