Kiezkaufhaus
Kiezkaufhaus

The Kiezkaufhaus is the answer to dying inner cities through to increased online shopping and the resulting CO2 emission. It’s an online shop with local merchants and producers that delivers the same day with cargo bikes. So it’s faster than Amazon and in addition free of emission. It combines the comfort of online shopping with the good cause to support local independent shops. Because those are the stores which make your city individual and beautiful. If they are gone the blank spaces will be filled by anonymous franchises. So on side of less CO2 emission, it Kiezkaufhaus also reduces inner city traffic and supports the finances of a city.

The jury was very impressed with this concept and it also perfectly embodies the public value idea, as many different societal needs are addressed and met. However, compared to the very strong competitors, the Kiezkaufhaus eventually did not qualify for an award.
