Population growth and migration, demographic ageing, structural changes in the economy, the energy shift and location competition: cities and municipalities are confronted with diverse challenges and the environment is growing ever more complex. We foster the enhancement of your long-term attractiveness and competitiveness with our services.

What special qualities does a city or municipality have? What distinguishes its identity? How does it want to position itself? And in which direction should its development go in the future?

Cities and municipalities are constantly searching for answers to these questions. In a nutshell: looking beyond day to day business, objectives need to be formulated, strategies defined and measures outlined that will meet the challenges of the future.

We help our clients to elaborate urban and municipal development concepts, spatial development strategies, visions and mission statements by:
