Planning Climate-Resilient Neighborhoods: Concluding Event of the Research Project "Green City of the Future"

What do various forms of greening on buildings and in neighborhoods contribute? How can urban society be involved in the development of green, climate-resilient neighborhoods? How can climate resilience be concretely integrated into planning and administrative processes, especially in urban and landscape design competitions? What roles do the stakeholders play, and what alternative approaches are available? The 'Green City of the Future II' project presents results and insights on these questions at a hybrid concluding event.

Good Practices for the Planning of Green, Climate-Resilient Neighborhoods

With practical examples, we demonstrate how municipal departments and independent planning firms can best proceed to preserve and enhance urban green spaces. Building on interdisciplinary research, especially in Munich, we provide recommendations for climate-adapted, green design – from individual buildings to neighborhood levels.

The focus is on optimizing planning tools such as zoning regulations, successfully implementing measures like tree planting and green facades, and actively involving citizens or businesses. Following the event, we will provide you with essential information in the form of guidelines, checklists, and action profiles.

Integration of Climate Adaptation Measures in Planning Competitions

We present concrete options to assist you in integrating climate adaptation into the various stages of urban and landscape planning competitions.

The focus lies on criteria related to various aspects of climate adaptation that can be systematically utilized in the competition briefing, pre-selection, as well as in the evaluation of designs. This was based on the observation and analysis of various competition processes in the city of Munich. We have summarized these specific options for you in a practical guide.
