Webinar on neighbourhood-based planning and co-creation
Revisit an informative online discussion, originally held online on 27 April 2022 in German, on the topic of neighbourhood-based planning and co-creation. The one-hour webinar, hosted by the German-speaking CIVINET (CIVINET Deutsche Sprachraum), featured presentations from the recent CIVITAS SUNRISE and Metamorphosis projects, and introduced participants to the SUMP Topic Guide on Sustainable Neighbourhood Mobility Planning – all of which were presented with a particular focus on relevancy to German-speaking cities.
Susanne Findeisen, City of Bremen, presented Bremen’s experience with co-creation in CIVITAS SUNRISE, particularly in addressing the challenge of street space management, and in developing a concept to reduce the amount of space taken up by parked cars. Karl Reiter, Institute for Traffic Pedagogy IVP, presented how the Metamorphosis project has helped transform car-friendly neighbourhoods into child-friendly places with improved quality of life – with direct involvement of children as key stakeholders at every stage. Ralf Brand, Rupprecht Consult, presented the SUMP Topic Guide on Sustainable Neighbourhood Mobility Planning mentioned above, which highlights ways in which planning efforts at the neighbourhood- and at the city-levels can complement one another.
