C2C AREA DEVELOPMENT
EU RESEARCHPROJECT

 

Vision statement increasing resource effectiveness/and biodiversity in the Latiner Quarter in Aarhus.
The design frame and basic intention for the Latin Quarter resource project is stated with roots in the following
design principles. We use these principles as inspirational to generate solutions where diversity, coherence, identity
of the place and the possibility of change are tied together with sustainable development that enriches the surroun-
dings and provides added value for all.

// Research process (estimated done over 1-2 years)
The research and development is suggested in collaboration with two other Quarters in EU with similar structure
and climate change issues. This includes 2 main conferences/workshops comparing and knowledge exchanging
across borders.

1. inventory for the area
2. comparison/workshop on mapping with all stakeholders (3 areas)
3. establishment of c2c elements with stakeholders
4. Roadmapping for the area
5. Comparison/workshop on mapping /stakeholders
6. c2c area development tool


 / CELEBRATE DIVERSITY

We recognize diversity as a defining characteristic of robust ecological, social and economic systems. By assessing and sti-
mulate diversity in all areas e.g. biodiversity, we can ensure that the Latin Quarter will continue to be a central place in Aarhus,
where the quality of being rich on diversity and variety will attract new residents and business opportunities due to the high quality of living.


/ CREATE CONSISTENCY

By focusing on creating relationships between new and old we will strengthen theidentity of the place.
Based on the site’s strengths and qualities we will help to build stronger and new relationships in the surrounding
society as a whole.



/ BRING NATURE INTO THE CITY
c2cnature

By giving nature, water and climate space in the city, as a main topic more than an opponent, we will deliberately create uni-
que and lasting interactions between the urban and natural structure, and increase attention to the human relations to nature.
By implementing green lungs locally, we furthermore want to create a pleasant and diverse city space environment for residents,
shoppers and business owners.



/ CREATE AND SUPPORT
INNOVATION

c2cinnovation

In order to promote the quality of living in the city with many old buildings, we encourage the use of impro-
ved processes, technology and smart infrastructure, and we will support research and knowledge exchange to that
end. Especially within the area of waste handling, symbioses collaboration projects and artful new habitat development.



/ DESIGN HEALTHY SYSTEMS
c2chealthy

We will use the Cradle to Cradle philosophy, that recognizes our interdependency at all scales, both in terms of ecological, social and economic
health. The projectwill encourage the formation of a local interdependence counsel, that wants to be the driving force in creating and maintaining a
healthy environment using healthy, defined and recyclable materials, creating an optimum basis for reuse and recycling of resources – generating
new business and collaboration possibilities.



/ INTELLIGENT USE OF ENERGY
c2cenergy

Intelligent use of energy carried out in three steps: First step is focused on reducing the need for energy and re-
sources. Second step is to optimize the use of resources throughout the entire lifecycle as in symbioses
collaboration. Third step is focusing on an efficient consumption and local production of clean energy.
