'Lebendige Stadt' Foundation

Since the year 2000, the "Lebendige Stadt" Foundation has been successfully working for the future of our cities under the Chairman of the Board of Trustees, Alexander Otto. The aim is to preserve the urban diversity of city centers as places where people work, as places where people have their home and as places of cultural activity. The work of the Foundation is focused on illumination concepts, green areas and the creation and design of urban spaces.

The Foundation Board

The Foundation Board is made up of prominent individuals from the fields of culture, science, business and research as well as from the municipalities, regions and associations. The Board discusses the basic principles of the Foundation and issues recommendations for implementation.
