Munich is one of Germany’s leading cities when it comes to quality of life. Since May 2014, the Bavarian capital has been led by the mayor Dieter Reiter. One of mayor Reiter’s main objectives is to keep Munich a cosmopolitan, open, and tolerant city where everyone feels welcome and can enjoy a high standard of living. Mayor of Munich earned a degree in administration from the University of Applied Sciences for Public Administration and Administration of Justice in Hof a der Saale in 1981. He then worked in the Munich city administration, including as the head of the cash and tax office in the city treasury. In 2014, Dieter Reiter succeeded long-serving Mayor Christian Ude, who led Munich from 1993 to 2014. During his first term in office, mayor Reiter made remarkable achievements in the field of traffic, urban planning, and ecology. Due to the devastating effects of human-induced climate change, our population began to face unprecedented risks. Cities around the world, including Munich, started taking steps to ensure greener and healthier local environments in an effort to help combat climate change and ensure a more sustainable future. Mayor Reiter is also focused on the promotion of electromobility and the expansion of the city's public transportation system. In order to make sure that innovations can thrive in Munich, and that future challenges can be properly addressed, the city has also taken steps to ensure adequate infrastructure. In 2021, the City of Munich and venture capital firm Unternehmertum unveiled Munich Urban Colab, an innovation and start-up center for smart city solutions. It was created to bring together start-ups, innovative businesses, and scientific research projects from around the world who are now able to join forces and find solutions to urban challenges. More recently, Munich teamed up with the Austrian capital Vienna in order to achieve climate neutrality faster. At the same time, Munich was also one of the German cities where rent prices have increased in the recent past. Mayor Reiter has also been fighting increasing rent prices in the city in order to make the housing more affordable for all Munich residents. The fight against right-wing extremism, as well as his commitment to the integration of foreigners, are also some of Reiter’s main priorities. Mayor Reiter’s leadership is best described by important climate and digitalization milestones that were reached during his term, as well as other numerous achievements across different fields.
