The people in small towns identify particularly strongly with their companies, and the companies with their towns. Often, both face the same challenges: Skilled labour, housing, local transport. Nevertheless, there is less co-operation than is possible and sensible. This potential can be mobilised with the KOWIS approach, a concept for cooperative urban development in small towns developed by FiFo, GGR and IW Consult. The German report is now available as a BBSR publication.
