Climate fund projects in the city of Linz


First sub-project of the Linz tree planting offensive on the following three streets: Leonfeldner Straße, Schubertstrasse and Kroatengasse 

Mag. Martin Krammer and Dipl.-HLFL-Ing. Werner Münzker (Municipality of Linz, Department of Urban Greenery and Street Care)

The tree planting offensive is a central component of the 1st Linz Climate Strategy. The innovative sponge city principle is to be applied to a total of eleven streets and infrastructure facilities. Underneath the paved surface, the individual trees are given more space for root growth and storage of precipitation water in interconnected gravel bodies. During longer periods of drought, this not only improves the cooling capacity through evaporation. The shade cast by the formation of a spreading crown also increases the quality of stay in the streets for the residents. In the first subproject, a preliminary design for Leonfeldner Strasse was prepared by a landscape architecture firm. The Kroatengasse is at an advanced stage of design planning and is in the detailed planning phase. In Schubertstrasse, tree planting due to adjustments to the sidewalk and bike path would mean a more complete reconstruction of the streetscape. As a replacement for Schubertstraße, the Linz City Senate decided on Pfarrplatz.

Analysis of wind data, the meteorological measuring station Linz City and their applicability for the Linz urban climate 

Mag. Dipl.-Ing. Wolfgang Gepp and Maria Feichtinger, MSc (Weatherpark GmbH Meteorological Research and Services)

The Central Institute for Meteorology and Geodynamics (ZAMG) has been collecting meteorological data at the Linz City station since 1992 in accordance with the guidelines of the World Meteorological Organization. The evaluation of the long-term wind climatology reveals conspicuous features with regard to an atypical distribution and significantly lower mean and maximum wind speeds. In the course of the project, the causes of the unusual values of the station Linz-City of the ZAMG are to be found. After first clarifications with the station operator ZAMG, a simulation of the wind field is to be carried out in order to find indications of the influencing factors and a suitable installation site for a comparison measuring station. At the same time, a station for measuring wind direction and speed over a period of 24 months will be set up at a nearby location and subsequently compared with the data from the Linz City station. Through this process, reasons for the unrepresentative evaluation of the Linz City station will be determined. Finally, measures will be developed to improve the validity of the measurements of the station Linz-City and to make them usable. Another goal is to raise awareness in the sense of informative signs, real-time displays of the measured values or even workshops for school classes or interested parties.




On the way to climate neutrality - updating the energy flow diagram of the city of Linz 

Judith Radhuber (Department of Urban Climatology and Environment, PTU)

In this city-owned project, the data of the energy efficiency program from 2011 is to be updated by means of an external assignment by a suitable company. This is necessary in order to be able to reliably identify the greatest levers for climate protection in the city's sphere of influence. Contents of the survey are the total energy consumption, the energy sources (such as natural gas, heating oil, coal, coke, renewable energy sources) as well as their purchase and use and the determination of a greenhouse gas reduction path. Following the data preparation and visualization as well as the presentation of the final report, the contents are to be made accessible to the public using various methods (press conference, social media contributions, lectures, etc.).

Trees for the future for old and young in the senior centers of the city of Linz  

Wolfgang Haudum 

Seniorenzentren Linz GmbH would like to improve the quality of living, working and staying for residents, employees, especially in the nursing and kitchen departments, as well as visitors by means of targeted greening measures. Trees and large shrubs are to be planted at the ten locations in order, on the one hand, to provide a better climate and pleasant recreational opportunities for the people of Linz and, on the other hand, to protect the facilities to some extent from heavy weather events. The additional greenery improves the quality of life, especially for the residents of the senior centers, not only by providing shade and cooling through evaporation, but also by including them in activities and celebrations throughout the year. An important step towards raising awareness is also the involvement of the apprentices of the city nursery to provide them with important insights into the preservation of plants and their use with regard to the climate.

Greening of the Linz Main Square 

Ing. Günter Haderer (Municipality of Linz, Department of Gardening and Nursery)

Manmade climate change is increasing the frequency and intensity of heatwaves in Linz. Inner city areas such as Linz's Hauptplatz are particularly affected by overheating due to dense development, a high degree of sealing and little vegetation in the open spaces. To improve the quality of stay at Linz's Hauptplatz, 30 winter lime trees were therefore planted in wooden troughs. In two to three years after planting, the littleleaf lime will grow and reach a crown diameter of up to 5 meters. The trees are also to be the starting point for further greening activities in the city of Linz. On September 17, 2020, the new trees were officially welcomed during a public event with several pop-up concerts and dance acts.

Greening measures Goetheschule  

Mag.arch Sandra Resch (Immobilien Linz GmbH & Co KG) 

In the course of the project, building facades and the gym flat roof of the Goetheschule are to be greened. In addition, a redesign of the inner courtyard is part of the project plan. Ground plantings will also be implemented. The greening measures can counteract excessive summer overheating in the city and thus improve the microclimate. Subsequently, the planned plantings will contribute to a higher quality of stay and pollutant or fine dust pollution will also be counteracted. The pilot project is specifically intended to show the extent to which further properties owned by Immobilien Linz GmbH & Co KG can be greened in order to make them more attractive. To this end, the longer-term practicality of greening measures (e.g. maintenance requirements) will be investigated and, if necessary, differences between individual greening measures will be documented.

Comparative study of the population of diurnal butterflies in the area of the flood protection dams on the Traun and Danube rivers in the Linz city area in 1993 versus 2021 and expected changes in the course of climate change 

Mag.a Gudrun Fuß (Municipality of Linz, Botanical Garden and Natural History Station)

Flood dams are among the richest butterfly habitats. Their often dry and nutrient-poor meadows are suitable to host semi-arid and dry grassland species in addition to meadow butterflies due to flower supply, plant diversity and topoclimate. There are many indicator species among diurnal butterflies. Their presence or absence provides information about the condition and value of existing habitats and can provide clues to changes in species diversity as a result of man-made climate change. The aim of the project is, on the one hand, to obtain up-to-date data on the butterfly species present at the flood protection dams, which, on the other hand, will allow for comparisons with the old data that are as accurate as possible. Based on this investigation, a catalog of measures for the management and maintenance of the areas will be developed. With the implementation of these measures, an improvement for the butterfly fauna should be achieved.

"Closing the climate-action gap" - I didn't know that at all 

Christian Neuwirth and Markus Kaiser-Mühlecker (ARGE Klimafilm) 

A series of entertaining short films is intended to create awareness and courage for climate-friendly living in Linz and elsewhere. In addition, the aim is to show as broad an audience as possible the effects that everyday behavior has on the climate in order to stimulate motivation for behavioral change in the direction of climate protection. The serial format will feature repetitive elements such as street surveys, fact boxes, and case studies/best practice examples. The total of five encouragement films cover the following topics:

  • Mobility (car-free living, electromobility, public transport, co-working, avoiding short-haul flights)
  • Housing, construction and energy (switching to renewable electricity and renovation)
  • Nutrition (change of diet, especially vegan diet)
  • Consumption (pets, sharing economy, buy less and use it longer, repair café, upcycling, fast fashion vs. slow fashion)
  • Climate projects/cooperatives and engagement (Fridays 4 Future, Transformation).

The so-called courage films were released in the summer of 2021 and distributed digitally via the social media channels of the city of Linz.

Crossing Europe goes Green -  in the framework of Crossng Europe Filmfestival Linz 2021

Mag. Gerald Harringer and Mag.a Sabine Gebetsroither (Crossing Europe Filmfestival gem. GmbH)

CROSSING EUROPE Filmfestival Linz wants to fulfill not only its cultural mission but also its social responsibility towards people and the environment. Against this background, the project "Crossing Europe Goes Green" focuses on sustainable and climate-friendly festival work. Environmental and sustainability aspects, such as climate-friendly travel to and from the festival as well as nutrition or the conservation of resources by recycling and upcycling festival materials, were included in the festival organization. These many environmental and sustainability aspects have also been included in the briefing of the Crossing Europe festival team. After the festival, it will be analyzed which results have been achieved with the measures and how they have been implemented. In the long term, all essential organizational processes should thus be continuously optimized in terms of their climate and resource compatibility - also in cooperation with other film festivals in Austria and the partner festivals in the European festival network MIOB (Moving Images Open Borders).

Think globally, act locally - "Climate education offensive in the Municipality of Linz" 

Florentina Girlinger-Feger (Personnel and Central Services, Municipality of Linz) 

The project aims to raise the awareness of employees at the Municipality of Linz on the topics of climate protection and sustainability in connection with health. Together with the company Glacier, a platform will be set up to provide information in an online learning format for interested employees. Subsequently, employees will have the opportunity to attend lectures and workshops held by internal experts from various departments and external experts. The goal is to make climate protection a tangible experience and to make the importance of the topic perceptible. At the same time, tools are provided to enable participants to make their own contribution on a daily basis.

Extension Stadtoase 2.0 

Ana Zuljevic (Department for Economy, Climate Protection, Innovation and EU, Office of the City Government) 

The Stadtoase on Hauptplatz, as a green space with seating and trees in troughs for shade, has been in existence since 2020. Demand and use is increasing with each passing year, especially since it is currently the only attractive place to stay on Linz's Hauptplatz without the need to consume. Against this background and in view of the recently published climate change adaptation concept, there is a need for further urban oases in the inner-city area. The Innovation Main Square Linz is therefore able to establish two additional locations for a green oasis with the project plan. When selecting the areas, particular attention will be paid to those where unsealing is not possible due to the prevailing conditions. An accompanying communication concept is also planned, which will draw attention to the opportunity to linger, but also to actively participate in the design and play of the urban oases. The goal of the project is to counteract the heat islands in the city of Linz and, in the process, to increase the quality of life for Linzers by expanding the city oases and offering them additional places to relax and cool off.

Effects of climate warming on the bat fauna of the city of Linz with regard to changes in species inventory, relevant abundances and their ecosystem services

Isabel Schmotzer and Guido Reiter (Coordination Office for Bat Conservation and Research in Austria) 

In this project the current bat fauna in the urban area of Linz will be surveyed and compared with earlier data from 1987 and 2002 also regarding species composition. For the survey, on the one hand, net catches will be carried out, whereby the animals will be released immediately on site after collecting their droppings. The fecal analysis will provide evidence of insects spreading in the course of climate warming, which may act as vectors for pathogens. In addition, excursion observations will be made in the evening at dusk and swarming observations at dawn. Together with interested citizens, acoustic monitoring with recording devices will be carried out in order to draw conclusions about the species and way of life based on the bat calls. Finally, an information letter for housing developers and authorities on bat protection will be written.

"Against heat-islands in the city" 
Greening and improving the open space quality infront of the Nordico Stadtmuseum

Dr. Gernot Barounig (Museums of the City Linz GmbH) 

The Nordico Stadtmuseum in Linz is also affected by the man-made climate crisis. The resulting overheating of the museum and the forecourt can be mitigated by greening measures. This also helps to make the garden of the restaurant located there more attractive. Specifically, six amber trees, a leather pod tree and 14 umbrella plantains were added to the existing tree population. The planting provides additional shade and increases the biodiversity on site. In addition, the paving was broken up in places and transformed into planting beds approximately 50 centimetres deep. All the greening projects were the subject of a separate exhibition in the museum's 2022 programme.

Gaby Mayrhofer (May-IT GmbH) 

Forest owners have suffered massive losses in tree cover in recent years due to bark beetle infestation, wind and snow pressure. At the same time, forests serve as important carbon sinks and contribute to a pleasant microclimate. The project will target forest islands in need of reforestation. Together with elementary schools and with the support of experienced forest workers and forest educators, these areas are planted with trees. Over the next four years, these forest islands will be looked after by children who will always be accompanied by forest educators. In addition, the participating schools will be provided with a wide variety of documents and educational materials in order to integrate the topics of environmental protection and nature conservation into theoretical lessons.

Climate Axis Linz 

Hannah Marlin Kordes 

In the course of this project, a concept for a climate-friendly redesign of the axis from Linz's Main Square via Lederergasse to the commercial harbour is to be developed. The impulses of the population and the surrounding associations, organisations and other actors will be captured. In the course of monthly walks, interested citizens will be invited to discover and rethink the public space together. During an open design and construction workshop, pop-up elements will be created and placed along the axis. The Municipality of Linz will install a pop-up cycle path and implement various greening measures. A converted bicycle trailer as a "harbour star" will serve as a meeting point for passers-by to network and exchange ideas. Furthermore, a feedback box will be set up along the axis, where wishes for the design of the axis can be submitted. At the end of the project, 20 measures for the redesign of the axis were identified. The project manager presented the concept to the decision-makers and discussed possible implementation steps.

Climate Acre 

Julia Schobesberger, MSc. BSc. (Climate Alliance Upper Austria) and Dr.phil. Christoph Musik, MA Bakk.phil. (VegetableAckerdemie Austria)

In this project, pupils together with teachers and other supporters in five Linz schools plant a climate garden directly at their school under the supervision of Climate Alliance Upper Austria and VegetableAckerdemie Austria. The school gardens are tended independently by pupils and teachers, who receive comprehensive support from the project team in the form of training. For example, the schools receive a starter package with vegetable bags and educational materials. Herb beds are planted in planting workshops. In total, up to 30 vegetable and 30 herb species are planted or sown. In addition, a sweet tooth hedge and, if there is enough space, a multi-grafted apple tree are planted. The children are thus gradually trained to become "herb and vegetable ambassadors" so that they can pass on their knowledge in their family and private environment. Teachers also receive a planting workshop per year and several further training sessions on the topic of arable knowledge in order to establish the climate field as a long-term place of learning, comparable to the gym or workroom.

Assessment tool for climate-friendly planning in Linz

Dr. Denis Havlik 

In order to predict the negative effects of the climate crisis on Europe's cities and identify appropriate countermeasures, new digital solutions and tools for climate experts and urban planners were developed in the course of the EU research project "CLARITY" under the leadership of the Austrian Institute of Technology (AIT). The city of Linz was involved in this project as a focus region on the topic of heat stress. The KLIMALINZ project, which builds on this, is now intended to make this prototype applicable for use in urban climate planning for Linz. The KLIMALINZ tool is intended to support both experts in urban planning in their daily work and external partners in project submissions. This will make it possible to make well-founded statements about the expected urban climatological consequences as early as the official submission stage. In this way, the CLARITY models will be improved by supplementing the data sets used for this purpose with higher-quality data already available for Linz and existing expertise and measurements.

Climate Social Linz

Christina Plank (Institute for Development Research, University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences, Vienna) 

In the course of this project, the understanding of different civil society actors and population groups in Linz for the multiple climate crisis is to be strengthened. Specifically, the project builds on the book "Climate Social Policy: Shaping a Just and Emission-Free Society". With diverse artistic interventions, the knowledge base and options for action are to be made tangible for the general population and specifically for different social groups. The aim is to make clear which social groups are confronted by the consequences of climate change and to what extent. For example, people with low incomes are more affected by heat waves. Interactive workshops, lectures, idea competitions for artists and much more are used as methods of communication. For the ongoing evaluation and documentation of results, there is scientific monitoring using social science methods.

CLIMATE ZONE. Sensory Theatre at Theater Phönix 

Silke Dörner (Theater Phoenix

CLIMATE ZONE is a project to develop an innovative mediation concept in the sense of climate change and the necessity of a rapid rethinking process. In the course of the project, a sensory theatre with a thematic focus on the climate crisis is to be conceptualised that opens up new methods beyond language. Instead, the sensory areas of hearing, seeing, smelling, touching, balance and many more are to be activated and integrated. The play should show that climate change can be felt physically. The play will thus be an individual experience for each visitor. Especially for school classes, pre- and post-processing on the topic of "climate protection measures" is offered.

Carbon Management in the Forests of the City of Linz - Baseline Study and Forest Inventory Survey

Ing. Günter Haderer (Municipality of Linz, Department of Gardening and Nursery) 

The urban forests and woodlands with their carbon management play an essential role as a natural greenhouse gas sink on the way to becoming a climate-neutral industrial city in 2040. How great the carbon sequestration potential of Linz's urban forests actually is needs to be scientifically investigated. To this end, a forest inventory is to be carried out in advance in cooperation with the University of Natural Resources and Applied Life Sciences (BOKU), Institute of Silviculture, and an external company. Furthermore, it is to be clarified, among other things, what amount of carbon is currently sequestered in the urban forests and woodlands and can still be sequestered by 2040 with the current forest management. This will enable a sustainable and ecologically compatible forest management concept for the coming years to be drawn up and implemented on the basis of the baseline study.

"Linz on foot" 

Mag.a Petra Pongratz (dieziwi association: Unabhängiges LandesFreiwilligenzentrum) and Mag. Hermann Rainer (Climate Alliance Upper Austria) 

Walking is the most climate-friendly way of getting around. It is resource-saving, space-saving, low-noise, free, inclusive and possible for all social groups. It also keeps you healthy and promotes independent mobility for young and old. The project aims to increase the attractiveness of walking in the city of Linz in daily mobility (on the way to work, for shopping and errands, in leisure time, etc.) as a supplement to walking for recreational purposes. For this purpose, a comprehensive research for good practice models, a pedestrian check in several city districts and networking with people and organisations who are concerned about walking will be carried out. Based on these findings, a variety of measures and offers will be developed: the platform linzzufuss.at with a digital walking map, a wide variety of campaigns, event formats and volunteer initiatives for walking in Linz. Linz on Foot is based on participation. Engaged residents of Linz can participate in the entire project process.

Pilot project Kaisergasse - Phase 1
Holistic energy concept for the climate-friendly renovation of existing residential complexes

Reinhold Helwin Prohaska and Julia Wiesinger 

The Pilot project Kaisergasse Phase 1 is a project developed by committed citizens for the Climate City of Linz to sustainably improve existing residential complexes in terms of electricity generation, building air conditioning, electric mobility and urban climate. The aim of the project is to explore how holistic and climate-friendly energy concepts can be realised for majority-owned residential complexes in Linz. For example, the existing roof insulation in Kaisergasse was examined and a concept for the possible design of a photovoltaic system was developed. The possibilities of a green roof and a charging infrastructure for electric vehicles were also explored. Phase 1 culminates in a meeting of all owners to vote on the measures collected. In phase 2, the agreed implementations will be initiated. The pilot project aims to initiate the climate-friendly renovation of many other housing complexes in the Linz city area. The experience gained will therefore be disseminated to the public through various channels.

After the successful completion of the evaluation project "Kaisergasse Pilot Project Phase 1", the insights gained were to be incorporated into concrete local implementation measures in phases 2 and 3, and follow-up or partner projects were to be supported in their implementation.

The following goals were defined:

  • Continue measures at Kaisergasse, such as roof insulation, roof greening, shading and further elaboration of the necessary framework conditions for the installation of PV systems.
  • Accompany various follow-up projects, such as the Climate Fund project "Leibnizhof - a workers' housing estate from 1939 becomes climafit." as a follow-up project from Phase 1
  • In cooperation with LINZ AG and KEBA, support the conception and construction of an innovative public charging infrastructure for the settlement area of Kaisergasse.
  • Promote public relations work by means of lectures and events in the settlement.
  • Develop an urban climatologically optimised utilisation concept for the green space in the inner courtyard and evaluate similar unused spaces in the settlement area in coordination with the climate fund project "urban ecology implementation programme"
  • Evaluate the legal framework created by the EAG and the WEG amendment together with local interest groups and citizens.

Beat electricity consumption  

Mag.a Ulrike Singer (Climate Alliance Upper Austria) 

In the project, pupils are given the opportunity to deal intensively with the topics of energy saving and energy efficiency. Workshops on the topics of fossil and renewable energies, climate protection, energy saving, etc., as well as school inspections will be carried out in a total of 10 schools. During the school inspections, the pupils and teachers will go on a guided search for energy consumers and possible savings potentials. In order to gain a better insight into the actual electricity consumption of various devices, the schools are provided with power bikes that can be used to generate the electricity that is consumed in everyday school life. An online training course for teaching staff is also planned, so that the content and documents can be integrated into lessons.

Serious Games for Energy Transition 

Assoz. Uniprof.in DI.in Dr.in Ingrid Graz 

This project focuses on the playful teaching of technical and scientific skills to children between 6 - 14 years of age in order to promote their understanding of climate change and renewable energies as an instrument of climate protection. In addition, by dealing with the effects of climate change in cities, a reference to their own living environment is established, which strengthens the pupils' own possibilities for action. In the project, educators and scientists from the field of renewable energies work together to prepare the complex topic for primary and secondary school pupils. The aim of the project is in particular to provide adequate teaching materials and to integrate them into current teacher training. In addition to teaching materials on the topics of climate change, sustainable development, urban metabolism and renewable energies, the project uses the mathematics software "GeoGebra". The "Serious Game" itself will be based on a level design, with different modules covering the thematic framework and taking into account the needs of the respective target group. The pilot project will be tested together with partner schools, evaluated and revised in a further step.

Urban Ecological Implementation Programme for the Integration of Climate Adaptation, Biodiversity and Quality of Life in the Development of the Provincial Capital Linz

Univ.-Lektor Dipl.-Ing. Dr. Harald Kutzenberger (TBK Office for Ecology and Landscape Planning), Dr. Friedrich Schwarz (Municipality of Linz, Botanical Garden and Natural History Station) and Dipl.-Ing.in Daniela Hofinger (Hofinger Landscape Ecology and Environmental Planning) 

The central element of the project scheme is about 100 specific implementation projects throughout the Linz urban area. The existing basic data of the Linz urban biotope mapping after 30 years will be digitalised, updated and supplemented by the social aspects of quality of life and the urban ecological bases of life (soil, water and climate). Landscape development concepts are drawn up for each area under consideration and integrated measures for conservation, addition or renewal are worked out. The urban ecology implementation programme also sets important accents in awareness raising. A local Citizien Activity Group is to accompany the implementation in practice and raise public interest.

Urban Ecological Implementation Programme Linz - deepening measures on the surface to integrate climate adaptation, biodiversity and quality of life in the development of the provincial capital

Thomas Schiefecker, MSc (Botanical Garden and Natural History Station of the city Linz) 

In the course of the first Urban Ecological Implementation Programme of 2021 - 2022, a catalogue of measures was drawn up on how urban areas should be ecologically upgraded and maintained. Some areas have already been implemented. For example, small animal habitats and nesting aids were built, biotopes were created and various areas were vegetated. In the course of the project, it also became clear that a more in-depth networking of all involved agencies with municipal institutions is necessary in order to be able to implement further measures. Through the already established citizen participation, the continuous involvement of the interested public is to be strengthened. The aim of this project is to extend the measures from the previous project in cooperation with a planning office and to anchor a broad-based and low-threshold implementation of the urban ecological goals in Linz. In this way, on the one hand, city-owned and partly private open spaces can be upgraded, and on the other hand, the quality of life, diversity of life and livelihoods such as soil, water and climate can be promoted.

Klimaschutz gegen Energiearmut 

Mag.a Jasmine Chansri, MBA (Volkshilfe OÖ) 

Der Klimawandel bringt massive soziale Folgen mit sich. So sind beispielsweise vulnerable Gruppen stärker betroffen und haben wenig Möglichkeiten, sich vor den Folgen des Klimawandels zu schützen. Konkret geben Haushalte, die von Energiearmut betroffen sind, mehr für Energie aus, als der durchschnittliche Haushalt in Österreich. Gründe dafür sind der oftmals schlechte Zustand der Wohngebäude, steigende Energiekosten, ineffiziente Verhaltensweisen und veraltete, energieintensive Haushaltsgeräte. Neben finanzieller Entlastung haben diese Haushalte oft auch Bedarf an niederschwelliger und leicht zugänglicher Informationen über mögliche Energiesparmaßnahmen. Ziel des Projektes ist es daher, 30 von Energiearmut betroffene Haushalte mittels sozialer Energieberatung durch eine:n Sozialberater:in über ein Jahr hinweg zur Ermächtigung zu begleiten. Den Haushalten wird konkrete effektive Hilfestellung wie Gerätetausch von ineffizienten, alten Geräten in energiesparende, neue Geräte sowie die Unterstützung beim Verstehen der Energierechnungen angeboten. Damit profitieren die Haushalte nicht nur finanziell, sondern auch in sozialer und gesundheitlicher Hinsicht. Die Aufklärung zum richtigen Lüften und Heizen mildert die gesundheitliche Beeinträchtigung am Wohnort. Ein Jahr nach der Beratung soll evaluiert werden, ob die Haushalte die Einspartipps gut umsetzen konnten.

H2 Convention - Development of the Hydrogen Economy for Climate Neutral Industry in the Greater Linz Area

Edward Strasser (Innovation in Politics Institute) 

The COpollution from energy-intensive industrial production poses major challenges, especially to large cities like Linz. The use of fossil fuels (e.g. coal or petroleum) contributes significantly to the release of greenhouse gases that accelerate climate change. However, industry in the Linz metropolitan area plays a key role in securing jobs and ensuring the prosperity of the entire population. Thus, new solutions must be developed quickly to guide the transition to an ecologically sustainable approach in various industrial sectors. In order to achieve the climate targets, the industry in Linz relies on the use of hydrogen as an energy carrier. Green hydrogen production or the import of green hydrogen from renewable energy sources represents a climate-friendly solution. The H2 Convention is intended to provide a platform for international multidisciplinary exchange between a wide range of decision-makers with regard to the use of hydrogen. For this purpose, a 2-day event is to be organized in the fall of 2023, which will promote the community building of the hydrogen economy in the greater Linz area, but also give citizens the opportunity to inform themselves about the developments and to get to know various projects.

Bicycle Strategy Linz 

Roman Minke (Municipality of Linz, 
Dep. PTU, Mobility planning) 

The city of Linz is embarking on the path to becoming a cycling city with its cycling strategy. In the course of this project, a concept for the promotion of cycling in Linz is to be developed by an external company. On the one hand, target values such as modal split, air quality, noise, energy balance, etc. are to be defined, but on the other hand, necessary measures and fields of action are to be identified, such as bicycle infrastructure, bicycle parking, awareness raising, multimodal approaches, living bicycle culture in politics and administration. The strategy should lead to concrete key projects for the next three years. Since the beginning of the project, several cycling forums have taken place to which representatives of the Linz city administration, the province of Upper Austria, as well as the cycling lobby, the ÖAMTC and ARBÖ were invited for joint discussions. The publication of the concept is planned for autumn 2023.
