Event Description: 

IMG_0648Vienna is internationally recognized for its high quality of life, clean environment and its sustainability policies. In 2011,a “Smart City Wien” strategy was launched for further integrated urban planning. The project combines a long-term overall ‘Smart City’ development plan with ambitious, systematically monitored targets, the use of ICT in developing ‘smart governance’ and ‘smart living’, and the city’s traffic policies (‘smart mobility’ in a ‘walkable city’). Vienna encourages the involvement of different interest groups and stakeholders in urban planning processes via general and specific consultation teams. These range from universities and think tanks, architects and investors to individual citizens themselves in the design, maintenance and future development of their own habitat. The Vienna approach is characterized by its long term perspective with an integrated people-oriented focus.
