Given the scale of the Rout Lëns project and the stakes involved at city level, the real estate developer IKO Real Estate wanted to involve the population in discussions by organising a citizen participation process early on. This consultation used several tools to enable a large number of people to express themselves: a survey entitled "Your opinion matters!” survey, and participatory workshops.


The voice of youth

To continue the approach begun with the citizens’ participation process, and because young people were poorly represented in it, IKO Real Estate staged an "Innovation Camp" with the Jonk Entrepreneuren Luxembourg association. During this day event, 40 young people between 16 and 19 set themselves the task of imagining "the place of young people in the city of tomorrow" and more particularly in the Rout Lëns district. It was a great opportunity to give the floor to the future users of the Rout Lëns district. A big thank you to the participants and congratulations to the winners!

Share your ideas and desires for the new Rout Lëns district!
