Why everyone wants to go to Berlin?

C12
(a) Berlin, like many other cities, is under massive pressure from the real estate industry. More and more empty spaces, wild sites and fallows are sold and bought. New Buildings with condominiums promise profit - as additional living space in Berlin is desperately needed. The city spreads on its edges - as its lively center(s) are facing an intense level of compression. Arising conflicts from the competing interests of the use of city spaces - especially those of clubs and their (new) neighbours in freshly build apartment blocks close to clubs - undermine a relaxed and tolerant co-existence of day and night utilisation of Berlin's inner city districts. Clubcommission and Berlin senate set up a program to finance measurements of noise protection/ reduction in clubs to reduce conflicts for the livable city of tomorrow... (b) Night mayors, night ambassadors, club commissions, night councils - there are many ways of bundling up the common interests of clubs, music venues and other nightly activists. Can cities like Brussels benefit from (international) experiences of Berlin and Zurich? Where is the path of auto-organisation in Brussels - and what are the chances of finding a good balance between co-operation with the city council and independent address of the very needs of a vital nightlife in this city? What could be the steps in Brussels' path to a sustainable representation of the interests of its night venues? And how would you finance it?
