The privately financed initiative "Rhein Ruhr City 2032" was launched in 2016 is concerned with a vision: a supra-regional, community-based, economically and ecologically sustainable concept for the Olympic and Paralympic Games in the metropolitan region Rhein-Ruhr. Through and not for the Games essential future topics such as networked mobility and digitalization can be decisively promoted - with 2032 as a target date.
„The power of sport is to connect people all over the world.“
Considering a sustainable and economically-ecologically sensible cost-benefit ratio, our concept for the privately financed Rhein Ruhr City 2032 initiative focuses on almost 90% of existing sports facilities in the metropolis Rhein/Ruhr which are needed for the Olympic Games.
People want to know what they get out of such a big event before they apply. "What do I get out of it?" is the central question in our concept. In cooperation with the RWTH Aachen University and Professor Dr. Günther Schuh, we are developing visions and concepts of how Olympia 2032 can serve as a motor and driver for the entire Rhein-Ruhr region and support the people who live here. This includes the topics of networked mobility and digitalisation.
A total of 14 municipalities are part of the Rhine-Ruhr City 2032 sports facility concept: Aachen, Bochum, Bonn, Dortmund, Duisburg, Düsseldorf, Essen, Gelsenkirchen, Cologne, Krefeld, Leverkusen, Mönchengladbach, Oberhausen and Recklinghausen. 14 municipalities that are enthusiastic about the idea of bundling forces and synergies for an overarching goal and thinking as one metropolitan region.
The Rhein Ruhr City 2032 Initiative sees itself as an offer to politics and sports policy, initiated from within society as a grassroot movement. The sovereign decision whether, with whom and when to apply for Olympic and Paralympic Games with Germany lies with the German Olympic Sports Confederation, the DOSB.
The concept Rhein Ruhr City 2032 contributes 100% to the IOC's Agenda 2020. The IOC's Agenda 2020, headed by its President Dr. Thomas Bach, and the further development of the Agenda in recent months mean that for the first time in the history of the Olympic and Paralympic Games, regions can also apply for the Games.

The potential Olympic and Paralympic Games will enable the Rhine and Ruhr, and thus for NRW and Germany, to decisively advance future topics such as networked mobility, digitalization and artificial intelligence, as well as sustainability and the Smart City - with 2032 as the set target date. In this context, we are organizing the #neuland congress series in cooperation with RWTH Aachen University and Prof. Dr. Günther Schuh.
The vision of #neuland is to break down barriers to innovation in regions and to realize an economic and ecological future concept for a digitally networked and mobile region.
