KUKA Kronsberg Environmental Liaison Agency
The local authorities in Hanover recognize the significance of the broad involvement of the citizens and of the public support for climate protection and energy efficiency improvement in the newly constructed housing estate in Kronsberg. For this reason they initiated the founding of the local agency KUKA (Kronsberg Environmental Liaison Agency) (1998 -2001). It informed the housing estate residents and involved them directly in public control on the implementation of the project and achievement of its environmental objectives. Step by step the Agency contributed to realization of a change in the residents’ behaviour in the course of the regular operation of the sites by making them more committed to the objectives related to mitigation of climate change. KUKA provided and initiated information and qualification for architects, planners, construction workers and housing companies. Also qualify assurance was supported.
