Opening of the first DialogPunkt in Kleve

Today we proudly opened our first regional office, the DialogPunkt, in Kleve’s lower town. This new initiative, which was created in close cooperation with the city of Kleve, will be a center for a variety of events and open consultation hours on the topic of sustainability in June. Our aim is to work together with the citizens to make Kleve a place worth living and loving in the long term.

A kick-off for sustainable change

Shortly after 6 p.m., Florian Gaisrucker, Innovation Manager for Society, welcomed the numerous guests and officially opened DialogPunkt Kleve. He then handed over to Christian Bomblat, Technical Councillor of the City of Kleve, who emphasized the importance of TransRegINT for the city.

“It is important for the city of Kleve to have partners at its side who identify with the sustainability goals and want to work with us on them. Because it is important to recognize that sustainability is not just a task for the administration, but an obligation that affects us all,” emphasized Christian Bomblat in his opening speech. He also presented the integrated municipal sustainability management of the city of Kleve, with a particular focus on the sustainability strategy developed together with the people of Kleve, which aims to make Kleve liveable for future generations.

A platform for ideas and projects

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Kisters, Vice President for Research, Innovation and Knowledge Transfer and head of the TransRegINT project, then presented the concept and objectives of the DialogPunkt. “Our aim is to create a platform where ideas can be exchanged and sustainability-related projects can be implemented,” he explained. The varied program for June was met with great interest: Panel discussions on urban greening and mobility, excursions, joint sustainability activities, workshops and lectures as well as special offers for children – there is something for everyone.

“We would be delighted if many people would join us in helping to transform the Lower Rhine region and make it fit for the future,” Florian Gaisrucker concluded his speech.

Networking in a pleasant atmosphere

Afterwards, the guests had the opportunity to network with each other while enjoying music and snacks. Those present took the opportunity to exchange ideas, make new contacts and find out about the planned activities and workshops. The atmosphere was characterized by anticipation for the upcoming events.

Shaping the future together

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Peter Kisters made it clear: “It is crucial that sustainability becomes a joint task. The DialogPunkt should be a place where citizens can actively participate and contribute their ideas.”

The opening of the DialogPunkt underlined the importance of the sustainability process in Kleve. Representatives from the city of Kleve and Rhine-Waal University of Applied Sciences emphasized how important this initiative is for promoting sustainable awareness in the region.
