Neckar Kapern

The problems of the Neckar in the Stuttgart region are well known – the river is inaccessible, there are hardly any leisure facilities and planning takes a long time. The project "Neckar Kapern" addresses these problems. The implementation and co-design is to be democratized through an app and reallabs. In this way, temporary interventions can also be created and all citizens are given the opportunity to shape their river.

The app offers an interactive map on which desired measures or interventions can be located by citizens. These locations can be seen, liked or pinned by users to identify places with acute need for action. In addition, small and temporary interventions such as urban gardening or self-built furniture can be realized independently via crowdfunding.
