Citizen’s action: preservation of a green  courtyard in the historical centre of Vienna

The old city of Vienna is listed as a "UNESCO World Heritage Site" and UNESCO Club Vienna informed on the Convention on Protection of Culture

The initiative resulted in formation of an association to raise awareness of the issues related to the preservation of green spaces in inner city areas.
Furthermore it generated debates and discussions between architects, city planners and civil society with respect to development of areas listed as heritage sites
