Integral strategy development for municipalities
The village has a future. Rural exodus, new worlds of work and demographic change have been driving up urbanisation rates for decades. But at the same time we are currently experiencing a trend reversal: The countryside is becoming the new space of the future.
In order to be able to position oneself successfully as a municipality in the future and to meet the challenges of social development, a progressive development approach is needed today.
What is needed is a common vision and a consensus among all actors – at all levels: institutional, strategic and operational – on the goals to be achieved and the way to achieve them.
A progressive mindset has long since ceased to be linked to the size of one’s own municipality. It is much more important that all decision-makers within a community say goodbye to particularistic thinking and actions and pursue a common, overriding goal:
Sharing a vision and implementing it together.
Building knowledge, strengthening trust, securing support, communicating internally and externally.
Quant pursues an integral development approach in strategy development for municipalities. In this approach, the foundations are developed in an overarching overall strategy. The basis for this is always an in-depth analysis and examination of the current circumstances, the «is situation» and the relevant external influences.
From Quant’s point of view, the progressive municipality of the future is developed in a co-creation process, i.e. the central stakeholders of the region, such as experience areas and locations, business, culture, universities of applied sciences, interest groups, public authorities, organisations and associations are involved.
This approach ensures that the resources and creativity, experience and skills of all stakeholders are mobilised. This enables us to deal with complex issues in a structured manner and, at the same time, to prepare challenging facts in such a way that they become clear and comprehensible. In this way, we offer those responsible an independent and objective basis for decision-making on the future development of a municipality.
In addition, we have selected and experienced partners when it comes to supra-local spatial planning, site development, neighbourhood and special use planning as well as land management. We also work with legal experts in all matters of public law and building law.
«Sustainable development meets the needs of the present generation without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.»
The civilisation of tomorrow
How will we live in the future? This question can only be answered if we understand the key drivers of the human way of life in their interplay: Technology, Economy and Culture. Cities are becoming “ruralised” and the countryside is becoming urbanised. New communities of interest are emerging, co-living, co-working and co-mobility are forming new living environments of cooperation and diversity. A new dialogue between human culture and nature is beginning.
The “15-minute city” gives citizens access to all important facilities of everyday life – from shopping to public authorities and leisure facilities – within a maximum of 15 minutes. By bike or on foot. The central squares and places are to become as car-free as possible, and in future the streets will primarily offer space for pedestrians and cyclists. This will not only improve air quality, but also the quality of life.
