      The EcoPROFIT program, in which over 200 Graz companies have participated since 1991, continues its success story (inter) nationally!To give an insight into an ECOPROFIT year, we will make the individual elements of an ECOPROFIT run visible.

      In addition to short presentations, the individual elements are developed interactively in parallel working groups together with the participants. All in the spirit of ECOPROFIT, where practical work/implementation is very important to us.
  • Cooperative urban district development with focus on quality of life and climate resilience – examples and reflections from practiceUrbanization and global warming are among the central challenges cities face worldwide. On the one hand, living space must be created for new population, which often leads to further densification and sealing of urban areas. On the other hand, solutions must be found for the negative consequences of global warming (summer overheating, heavy rainfall, etc.). Both aspects – redensification and climate change consequences – have a significant impact on the quality of life for the people living in a city.
