Successful Build4People Urban Quality of Life Conceptualization Workshop

On 26 November 2020, the Build4People project organized a virtual workshop dealing with the conceptualization of urban quality of life, see agenda.

Urban Quality of Life (UQoL) is regarded as the common link of Build4People’s scientific-conceptual, analytical and normative research and it is considered to be the general basis for our people-oriented approach. During the upcoming RD phase, we will also analyze its political dimension and its often ambiguous relationship to sustainability.

The workshop successfully brought together the previous research of the individual Build4People work packages and thus contributed to an initial conceptualization.

The workshop was hosted by the Otto-von-Guericke University Magdeburg, WP1 “Behavior Change” and prepared with support from WP4 “Urban Green” and WP7 “Coordination, Communication & Dissemination”.

Dr. Anke Blöbaum, Magdeburg University, presents about the theoretical background of the concept of urban quality of life
Dipl.-Ing. Rolf Messerschmidt, CEO of EMP, presents urban quality of life from the perspective of sustainable neighbourhood development.
