Courtyard Controversies

Vienna is Growing: At Whose Expense?

“More growth” is the order of the day in times of global crises. Development is seen as a guarantor of prosperity and a healthy economy. But can this promise still be kept in times of dwindling resources and disadvantaged areas? What opportunities and risks do growth scenarios entail, and how can the process be designed to be equally fair to all city residents? What environmental, socially responsible, and regional models offer alternatives to help us combat the negative consequences for the environment and urban society?

A discussion with Michael Getzner (Centre of Public Finance and Infrastructure Policy, Vienna University of Technology), Christoph Chorherr (Green Party, Vienna City Council), Thomas Ritt (Vienna Chamber of Labor), and Franziska Leeb (moderator)

The round-table discussion will be followed by a reception with snacks and drinks.
