In the fall of 2019, we wrote an event concept for ZUKON2021. Due to the Corona pandemic, we initially designed the future conference as a hybrid event. In this way, the format could be flexibly adapted to the prevailing pandemic situation and took place from February 19-21, 2021 as a purely digital event. Representatives from a wide range of social sectors were involved in the future conference: Representatives from the city administration and business, citizens, politicians, associations, representatives from the church and from art and culture, students and scientists. In addition to support in the organization in the run-up, city2science was responsible for the digital implementation of ZUKON with about 100 participants as well as for the moderation.
