In the last Smart Cities call "Lighthouse projects for Resilient Cities 2040", the Climate and Energy Fund (Klima- und Energiefonds) focused on the revitalisation of working-class quarter. The project "ZUSIE - Future Settlement" addresses this focus and wants to question the approach of exclusively economic criteria in relation to historical housing stock and - in the sense of the Smart City concept - develop and implement complementary social and ecological criteria. The aim is to show how investment measures can be re-evaluated in a multidimensional view of social, ecological and economic criteria as well as taking into account the entire life cycle of neighbourhoods, thus making new and alternative decisions possible.
In the context of the project, a non-profit working-class quarter of the "Erste gemeinnützige Wohnungsgesellschaft" (EGW) in Erpersdorf (municipality of Zwentendorf) is to be further developed on several levels and pilot building blocks for a revitalised and climate-resilient future of the settlement are to be implemented.
e7 supports the development of new energy concepts in order to achieve the goal of reducing CO2 emissions to zero by 2040. In addition, the climate-resilient revitalisation of the settlement is to serve as a model and basis for inspiring and implementing further projects.
