Vienna is growing and it is becoming ever more important to use free space in multiple ways. The objective is a liveable, cool and fairly shared city with socially mixed neighbourhoods and active citizens. Public space belongs to all of us and we can all enjoy, discover and shape it. The neighbourhood oases demonstrate how small free spaces around the corner or right on the doorstep can be used. The initiative is open to all Viennese and supports selected initiatives with up to € 4.000,- to implement creative ideas in the public space together with others.

They discussed parklets as a winterproof and pandemic proof tool to create a space for encounter and creativitiy. The adressed challenges and solutions from their inspiring hands-on learnings.
