Process and Future Energy Vision Logo

The name and logo explain that the climate and energy initiative is a
process taking place in all 29 municipalities of the district.
A design (the energy efficiency symbol) that is known to a broad public and
which is directly connected to energy and climate protection was
intentionally chosen.

Projection Campaign
Projections on 8 buildings in the
district between April und
November 2016
these projections run in several
municipalities :
- June 29th in Grfelfing
- July 2nd in Haar
- July 9th in Neuried
- September 15th in Aschheim
The objective is to generate public attention for the participation process
through a low-threshold,
innovative approach, targeting groups which initially know nothing of the
topic.
citizens are involved during the event, as they can state their wishes in
terms of environment and energy, which are then integrated immediately
into the projection.
