Green infrastructure for better living

Matthias Lampert from the City of Munich spent a week in Vienna to take a closer look at the challenges of the city regarding open spaces.

The City of Vienna faces similar challenges regarding urban development, open space development and inter-municipal co-operation.

Despite a different organisational structure the City of Vienna has very interesting takes on public relation work for open space issues, the orientation for open spaces and also different criteria and methods for the evaluation of green spaces.

Matthias conclusion is: "I was surprised about the density, also in present housing projects, the active role of the forestry department in open space development, the importance of Sociology and the spread of professions within the division for open space planning."
