Bertram Werle is the Director for Urban Planning, Development and Construction at the City of Graz.
Bertram and his team are trying to turn Graz into a Smart City which follows an energy-efficient, resource-conserving and low-emission strategic approach. Graz has an increasing population with limited building area. Due to these challenges, their strategy is to focus on sustainable development and to foster gentle mobility. Their main priority is to transform Graz into a modern medium-sized city in terms of high quality of living and sustainability.
