Climate-friendly Forum Salzgitter


As part of this project, the centres of Salzgitter-Bad and Salzgitter-Lebenstedt were adapted to the current challenges posed by climate change. Climate-resilient trees were added to an area totalling 2,600 m2 , a water and mist feature was installed to lower the ambient temperature and drinking fountains were set up for refreshment in between. Another special feature are the innovative solar benches where smartphones can be charged or WLAN can be used. Small, green oases are intended to invite people to linger in the city centre and make it more attractive – entirely under the aspect of climate adaptation and improvement of the climate balance.
