It was created in 1946. It has a population of 516.000 people and is therefore the largest city in the state. In the year 1995 Hannover decided to join the Agenda 21 and start a local agenda. This agenda was kick started with the EXPO 2000. The EXPO 2000 was part of the start for new projects. Kronsberg was the first and biggest project connected to the EXPO 2000. It was established in the late 1990s and there are about 6600 people living in 2,600 apartments, 150 condominiums and about 400 private townhouses. The Agenda 21 aims to “prepare” countries for the 21st century and get certain standards throughout. The investigated parts of Hannover will be Kronsberg, Laatzen and for comparison the List and the Suedstadt. Kronsberg is the district which is directly associated with the EXPO 2000 whereas Laatzen is “only” the district closest to the Messe Gelaende. The List and the Suedstadt are only assessed for comparison and for portraying influence of the Agenda 21 goals in older districts of Hannover. Each of these districts will be assessed on building quality (insulation, sustainable energy supply). The assessment of these districts will be carried through with visual proof. I will be taking pictures of indications on the points that should be awarded from 1-5, 1 being the worst and 5 being the best.
