District Core Actors:
Over the years, the oldest part of the city, the former workers' and sack-carrier district, has advanced to become a trendy meeting place and one of Germany's most recognized creativity hotspots: the process from tradition to modern subculture and its effects can be felt everywhere here. However, it is also a fascinating mix of cultures that come together and create a very special, sometimes extravagant atmosphere. The mixture of a progressive creative scene and a cultural melting pot is its special attraction, which, however, brings challenges with it. The Jungbusch neighborhood management has been addressing these challenges for years through a wide variety of activities and, since 2017, also as part of the Local Urban Renewal program.
This important interface between industrial and residential areas offered the opportunity to combine living and working, to locate businesses and services and to cover the demand for sports and recreational facilities. The development along the "canal" is thus a catalyst to upgrade the neighboring district; the lively, versatile and urban district has become an attractive and entrepreneur-friendly environment. By pooling existing resources, a model was created with a high appeal for inner-city, urban living and work for different population groups.
The Jungbusch neighborhood management and LOS are also active in the areas of modernization and gentrification, safety and cleanliness, economic awakening, local economy and employment, as well as the promotion and activation of community involvement, community-based events and neighborhood activities.
