ISBN-13: 9783928817387

Demographie ist nicht attractive. Schrumpfen, Altern, Rückbauen und Abreißen sind keine Themen, die erfolgsorientierte Politikerinnen und Politiker zu großen Taten animieren. Da der demographische Wandel viele Politikbereiche berührt, empfiehlt es sich, offensiv damit umzugehen. Im Kern geht es um die Frage, wie wir morgen leben wollen, wenn eine Gesellschaft schrumpft und altert. Wer Mut hat, kann viel Neues schaffen. Demographie hat nicht nur unfavorable Seiten. Sie bietet auch erstaunliche neue Chancen und Perspektiven. Das Impulsprojekt Illingen 2030 hat viele Erkenntnisse gebracht, die auf andere Kommunen übertragbar sind. Armin König ist Bürgermeister der Gemeinde Illingen und leitete das Projekt Illingen 2030.
