Intergenerational, participatory concepts to strengthen neighborhoods: Project presentation & discussion



07.11.2022 | 17:30 - 19:00
IBA-Zentrum, Nordwestbahnstraße 16, 1200 Wien

The desire to strengthen the neighborhood is a result of the residents' survey, which was implemented by the City of Vienna - Wiener Wohnen in the Per-Albin-Hansson-Siedlung Ost (PAHO) within the framework of the IBA_Vienna. Therefore, intergenerational participatory measures were increasingly implemented in the PAHO, which will be presented in the lecture and their mode of action will be illuminated.

We look forward to a joint exchange with you and our guests:

  • Stefanie Doppler-Gruber (Wiener Wohnen, Head of Wiener Wohnen IBA Program) & Regina Webhofer (WrWKS, IBA Project Manager).
  • Dieter Schrattenholzer (Head of SOS-Kinderdorf-Wien West with the project "Heimspiel")
  • Karin Harather (Project Management BiB-Lab - Innovation Lab for Educational Spaces in Motion, Vienna University of Technology)
  • Stephan Duursma (Home Management Haus Laaerberg, Vienna Board of Trustees for Retirement Homes)
  • Ebru Ayas (Area management, wohnpartner area 10)
  • Moderation: Julia Girardi-Hoog (Wiener Wohnen, Head of Social Services)

Language: This event will be held in German.
