The anniversary takes place against the backdrop of global climate change, the consequences of which can also be clearly felt in Berlin: Extreme weather such as heat or heavy rain. Water-sensitive urban planning, also known as the "sponge city principle", is regarded as a pioneering planning tool on the way to climate resilience and adaptation.

The Lenné Symposium 2024 will be about taking stock and looking ahead: Where does Berlin stand on the path to becoming a water-sensitive city? How can we create the necessary conditions for successful implementation - including in existing buildings, not just new ones? And last but not least: How must the profession of open space and landscape architecture position itself with regard to sustainable, water-sensitive urban redevelopment?

After the introduction by Britta Behrendt, State Secretary for Climate Protection and the Environment, the keynote speech by Dr. Britta Ammermüller on the National Water Strategy, representatives from the profession, including bdla President Prof. Stephan Lenzen, from teaching and the next generation will present their positions. Afterwards, answers will be developed in different working and thinking spaces.
