Urban planning has an enormous impact on the areas of mobility, energy and water management: settlement forms and densities influence the mobility of people and goods. At the same time, mobility options enable other (traffic-intensive) settlement structures. Building types affect the type and quantity of energy consumed, and at the same time define potentials for local and regenerative production of sustainable energy. Degrees of sealing and open space management influence how fresh water, custom and rainwater are handled. KoGeReC therefore wants to consider urban planning integratively with the other disciplines and contribute to sustainable settlement development.
