Blessed Spannberg

The world is changing rapidly and often too fast for many people. The towns and villages are in a constant process of adaptation. Local politics is required to involve citizens in the design process and to reduce their fear of change.

In Austria will be more than 35% of inhabitants over 60 years old by 2050. Climate change will become stronger and the average temperature will have risen by much more than 2 degrees Celsius. Vienna will continue grow and thus have a decisive influence on life in the small communities of Lower Austria. These small villages want to take advantage of the opportunities of the future, but without losing the benefits of the village social structure. Keeping one's own identity also means preserving the village's public welfare structure!

The goal of the project is the creation of a vision for Spannberg, how the municipality would like to develop by the year 2050.

Today the challenges for an Austrian community are huge and depend on different things, such as demographics, vacancy real estate, climate change, nature conservation and digitization.

These aspects will be addressed in the coming months and seek common solutions. There will be a larger number of public participation processes as well as a separate empowerment process. In it, the citizens should also learn about dealing with direct democracy and getting involved in political processes.

The project is scheduled for the period May to December 2019. The results should also be brought closer to the neighboring communities. The goal is to permit a change in the community with a small reform of the thoughts without losing its identity.
