DEMOCHANGE Switzerland: Conference Nidwalden
Nidwalden - September 2011
The conference "Demochange Nidwalden" took place on the 15th of September 2011 and informed about opportunities and threats of the demographic change concerning the region. The participants voted for three different projects that will be pursued by committed citizens and experts.
In Stans, the capital of Nidwalden, 120 participants attended the event. Also members of the cantonal government of Nidwalden, the specialist department of INTERREG Central Switzerland as well as of the Federal Office of Spatial Development attended.
Members of the three thematic working groups “social issues”, “economic & tourism” and “agriculture” presented basic demographic data due to their field of action for the Kanton of Nidwalden and introduced their project ideas to the public.
In small moderated groups, the attendees discussed the eight different project ideas.
The three project ideas that have been prioritized by the attendees for the further development within the Demochange project are:
1. “Future living facilities”
2. “Revitalize old knowledge”
3. “On the spoor of culture and nature”.
For the further project work volunteers have been involved to pursue the project ideas.
