CityToolBox- Website Launch

On Saturday, the 13th of May, the launch of the 'CityToolBox' will take place at ZK/U - Zentrum für Kunst und Urbanistik (Center for Art and Urbanistics). 

citytoolbox.net is an online-learning platform that encourages citizen-driven actions in the urban landscape, following the “CIY-idea” – Change It Yourself! 

CityToolBox allows future professionals and dedicated citizens to gather practical knowledge for bottom-up activities in the urban field and creates awareness of the communal effort. CityToolBox gives local agents the opportunity to share their own community projects, such as youth festivals, urban walks or community-run markets, offering the chance to exchange tools and guidelines they need to create one themselves.
