Dialog Days: Introducing the Helleheide Quarter

Diverse program for sustainable and climate-friendly neighborhood development

A new district is being created in Oldenburg and with it the smart residential area of Helleheide on around four hectares in the northern part of the former air base. Helleheide is designed as a future-oriented quarter for people of all ages and income groups. With plenty of room for innovation, for neighborly community and a climate-friendly energy concept.

Supported by the Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy and the Federal Ministry of Education and Research, 21 partners* from business, science, administration, housing construction and networks are developing the quarter into an energy neighborhood. The aim is also to establish a real laboratory on the site where innovations and ideas for technologies and services for smart cities and regions can be developed and tested.

The neighborhood introduces itself: Various (digital) events on the neighborhood as well as on the topics of neighborhood and climate protection will take place as part of the Helleheide Dialog Days from October 21 to 29, 2020.

In digital discussion groups, for example, questions will be explored such as how neighborly life in the neighborhood can be organized and what potential digital and sharing services offer, or how sustainable and intelligent mobility will develop in the future as a tightrope walk between technology and transformation. In interactive game sessions, the participants jointly develop a climate-friendly neighborhood. Strategic decisions must be made to achieve the goals of energy system transformation in the neighborhood.  

In an interview, energy expert Prof. Dr. Claudia Kempfert explains why we have to act now and protect the climate, gives climate protection tips and takes a look at Oldenburg's urban development.
