In Finland, people believe that the sauna is the most democratic place of all. People sit on the same level, are naked and therefore freed from role models and representation, and can have more open and heated discussions than anywhere else. Sauna sessions encourage people to talk to each other openly without social barriers. That’s exactly what we want to do. We invite all residents, visitors and stakeholders around Lake Traunsee to discuss spatial policy with us. The really hot topics of the Traunsee region will be discussed in the floating sauna: the few public access points to the lake, strange (re)dedications, lack of co-determination, the overflowing traffic and much more. The unusual spatial planner Isabel Stumfol and the radically different architect Clemens Bauder have been invited as external experts. The sauna thus becomes a floating agora. Sweat, talk, argue, cool down. Let’s take a different approach to problems!

If you would like to take a sauna, please bring:
swimwear & slippers, bathrobe and a sauna towel.
We are also happy to receive a contribution towards the cost of wood (approx. 5 – 10€/person).

Location: Traunkirchen Dampfersteg
