How we work
We work with reference to the district. We make ourselves aware of the reality of the local people on a daily basis, experience their view of things, work out strategies, solutions and projects in a cooperative and co-creative way.
integrated urban development
Together we want to
make a difference.
as values along the way.
WHAT WE REPRESENT
Our vision is to work together preserving and transforming cities into places worth living in for everyone. This is what we are committed to every day in our work. We are on site, in the districts and neighborhoods. We are inspired by the people we work with and for whom we continue to work.
For us, it's all about working constantly
with the local people and empowering
them to be active themselves, not about developing projects
and always bringing new ideas to the district.
In the team of Stadtkümmerei, people from different disciplines and life situations come together. We differ in interests, age, knowledge, origin and much more and have made this diversity our greatest strength. As a team we face challenges, as a team we always dare to tackle new topics, as a team we are methodically breaking new ground and questioning our work anew every day.
That is what defines us
Diversity. Humor. Proximity.
We are diverse and appreciate this diversity in our work. We're close to the people, their realities, their ideas and concerns. We can learn from and laugh about our mistakes and incorporate change as another constant in our work.
Knowhow. Consistency. Collaboration.
Working in a network is particularly enriching for us. We maintain our contacts and through this consistency have grown into a permanent partner in urban development. These same values are also our benchmark when working with local people. We learn from each other, we work together, we want relationships to be based on an equal footing and to find the solution that best meets their needs.
We do not measure success in numbers, but in deeds and words of dedicated people.
There is always room for new ideas! We are delighted to meet you.
