Raum als limitierender Faktor für gesellschaftliche Entwicklung – Die besonderen räumlichen Herausforderungen an die Bürgergesellschaft und Verwaltung der Stadt Wörth am RheinMai 21st, 2015 | By Dennis Nitsche | Category: New Forms of the Social, Sociohistorical analysis, Topics
Everyday life in human society is severely influenced by geographic settings, since individual and social ac-tivities as well as interactions unfold in specific places. They define the real space of a “Lebensraum”. The geographic or structural dissection of this space can hamper the evolvement of a civil public spirit – society then appears as dissected as the space. The city of Wörth am Rhein with four geographically completely separated municipal areas serves as an example for geographically complex urban spaces with the respective social, public and administrative challenges. The author provides an in depth analysis of the problem and shows possible approaches to overcome social dissection.
