How will we live in the future? How is society changing and what does that mean for our living environment? How can municipalities and cities anticipate change and remain fit for the future? Against the background of the ongoing transformation of space and society, what principles can be derived for the future in terms of organization, design and use? In the course of the Baden Regio seminar, we worked intensively with the Zukunftsinstitut on these questions. As a result, we defined principles that are important components of our planning in terms of competitiveness and innovative strength.
