A city without CO2 emission: How could the inner ring road of Leipzig look like?






Leipzig, 14.01.2019 – Topics as ‘green city’ and ‘Reduction of CO2 in big cities’ are more and more spoken about. How could the Leipzig inner ring road look like, if f.e. there is a reduce of 50% car traffic? On Monday evening the second workshop about ‘Concept of urban space: The City Center of Leipzig is growing over the inner ring road’ was held in Leipzig. This workshop was organised by the City of Leipzig in context of the European DEMO-EC Project.

Architecture students from the Bauhaus-University Weimar presented their innovative designs of new possibilities of the inner ring road to local actors of the City of Leipzig. The concepts of the students were characterised by a high degree of innovation, appreciation and retention of the history of Leipzig.

Some designs were better accepted by the audience than others. After the presentation the students received the opportunity, through group discussions with local actors, to defend their visions or to get more insights into it.

Are you getting curious to the results of the students or do you wonder how the inner ring road of Leipzig could look like if there is 50% less car traffic? Take a look at www.leipzig.de/stadtraumkonzept for more information about the project and for further announcements.

Look back to the partner meeting the 8th and 9th of October 2018 in Pomurje Region (Slovenia)





The international, or better the interregional meeting took place in Moravske Toplice, a small town in the north eastern part of Slovenia. Like in Central Germany the 500 years of the Reformation where celebrated here in the last year, due to the fact, that the first protestant church of Slovenia was built here.

The pilot-investment of this region is an ensemble of a solar energy system, consisting of a solar e-tree and a photovoltaic system bench. Next to the purpose of power generation this ensemble is meant to show the young generation the purpose and necessitiy of renewable energy sources (cf. pictures). On the occasion of a peer review and a study visit of this investment we visited the modern school building next to the spot of the investment. The total ensemble of the investment and the school left a lasting impression on the partners. It was clear that the municipality is preparing itself for the future in a progressive way by using sustainable energy sources.

The 12 partner organisations of the Interreg Central Europe project RURES are mainly municipalities and Energy Agencies. They come from five regions and six different countries. To the meeting the partners brought their experts of energy efficiency and renewable energy sources. Altogether we were 27 participants, we felt welcome by the host Local Energy Agency Pomurje and we had a fruitful discussion.
