Garden Dreams Lounge in the Best Practice Project Pool "Stadtimpulse" certified
Not ennobled, but certified
The Garden Dreams Lounge established by the Stadtmarketinggesellschaft last year on Dessau’s market square in conjunction with the Open Stage was included as one of the first best practice projects in the nationally certified “Stadtimpulse” project pool.
This was initiated by an alliance of leading trade associations and institutions for cities and municipalities in Germany and supported by numerous partners such as the German Trade Association, the German Association of Cities and Municipalities, the German Association of Cities and Towns and the Federal Association of City and Urban Marketing.
By the project executing agency, CIMA Beratung und Management GmbH, the decision to establish the “City Impulses” was justified as follows:
“What our cities and centers need in the current situation are practical measures for revitalization that can be implemented quickly. Visible impulses are needed that offer solutions to challenging, individual situations on the ground.”
The “City Impulses” exclusively portray examples of certified quality and show pioneering projects implemented throughout Germany, with which comprehensible successes in the areas of inner city, retail and urban life are already associated. For certification, clear quality standards were jointly developed by the initiators, including innovative character (alternatively: regularly developed enduring value), measurable success and sustainable impact, exemplary function and transferability, as well as strategic integration and partnerships.
