sdg21.theme "responsive" again

The previous sdg21.WordPress theme was no longer "responsive" for quite a while, which is why not all functions could be used, especially on smartphones. This week I was finally able to solve the problem. So now the sdg21.web database is available again on tablets and smartphones with full functionality. Through the new "Theme" it can [...]

New domain: "sdg21.eu" instead of "siedlungen.eu".

As of today, the web database for sustainable settlements and neighbourhoods can be accessed under the domain "sdg21.eu". The previous domains www.siedlungen.eu, www.holzbausiedlungen.de and their subdomains are still active and lead directly to the respective contents.



Why the move to sdg21.eu?

There is a content-related and a practical reason for this. The practical reason is the somewhat shorter spelling, but also that it is easier to pronounce.

The reason for this is that this website is not only about settlements, as www.siedlungen.eu would suggest, but increasingly also about urban districts. There are not as many urban quarters with more far-reaching sustainability concepts as there are sustainable settlements or eco-settlements. However, the urban structure of mixed-use neighbourhoods, in the best case scenario, and the significantly lower land consumption in most cases for the same usable area, is in itself a significant contribution to sustainable development. Mixed-use neighbourhoods are conceptually ideally suited to organising everyday mobility without private cars and are an established and proven method of creating affordable housing in the city.

In order to be able to communicate this topic more directly, there is now an additional access within the sdg21.web database via the URL www.quartiere.net. This link will directly display Sustainable Urban Neighborhoods.

New domains "sdg21.eu" as well as sdg21.de, sdg21.ch and sdg21.at

Although www.siedlungen.eu is self-explanatory in the German-speaking world, it is somewhat unwieldy in normal language usage. For this reason, the abbreviation "sdg21" has also been used since February 2017. It is formed from the acronym for "sustainable development goals", the number stands for the 21st century. The Sustainable Development Goals 2030 were adopted in September [...]
