The German Association of Towns and Municipalities and the Playground + Landscape Verlag have decided to cancel this year's edition of "Bewegung in der Stadt - Städte und Gemeinden als Räume der Bewegung und Spiel 2020" (Movement in the City - Towns and Municipalities as Spaces of Movement and Play 2020) due to the current development of the Covid19 cases and the applicable Corona regulations in the State of Lower Saxony. The event, which was originally scheduled for 12 November 2020 in the Old Town Hall in Hanover, is now to take place in November 2021 at the same location. The programme planned for this year will also be adopted as far as possible. An exact date for the 2021 event will be announced shortly.
