Climate and environment protection, energy efficiency, resource management, sustainable enconomy are current topics, we have to deal with. Many strategy papers and funding programs of the european union, of Austria and Carinthia (like EU 20-20-20, energy masterplan of carinthia) show the topicality as well as goals and solution approaches. Thereby many topics matter: renewable energy, energy efficiency, mobility, recycling, ecological food, regional products and services, etc.

The city of Villch is already on the way to become a "Smart City" and has developed a proper strategy in the last years. Some projects are implemented successfully. The city and its 19 surrounding communities cooperate for 15 years and start with this project the creation of a smart region to solve the challenges of a sustainable development of the whole region.
