Transformative strategies for an integrated neighbourhood development: Action concepts and evaluation options for high-influx cities (so-called 'Schwarmstädte') (TRASIQ)

This collaborative project aimed at developing integrated visions of the future, addressing the existing target conflicts from the perspective of municipalities and citizens. The project developed concrete recommendations for action at both municipal and national level. In concrete terms, a model was to be developed in a participatory process - involving municipalities and citizens - and scenarios were to be drawn up that allow for assessing various options of urban quarter development. The work was directly related to a development area in the city of Darmstadt (Cabrai-Fritsch-area) and in the city of Griesheim. The project was being conducted by Oeko-Institut in cooperation with scientific partners, i.e. ILS, Dortmund and difu, Berlin as well as the municipalities of Darmstadt and Griesheim. As regards the communication with stakeholders, the team was supported by team ewen and the Schaderstiftung (both Darmstadt).
