The Freiburg Charter

The Freiburg Charter was developed in partnership with the City of Freiburg in recognition of winning the Academy’s European City of the Year Award 2010. The city is an outstanding example of sustainable urbanism of which this publication aims to distill through 12 principles.

Prof Wulf Daseking, who as Head of Planning & Development in Freiburg has overseen its changes for over 25 years, has since been elected as the Academy’s second Honorary Academician.
