“Sozialatlas Lungau” presents the outcomes of the initiative Tu was, dann tut sich was. and documents the findings of the scientific projects that accompanied the first project of this kind in the region of Lungau in Salzburg.

The book provides analysis and insights into the social and economic set-up of this particular region and shows in which ways the Tu was initiative was able to change things in an area that struggles economically as well as socially.

Tu was, dann tut sich was is a project by Internationales Forschungszentrum für Soziale und Ethische Fragen (ifz) and the members of SinnStifter, a joint initiative of six Austrian foundations (ERSTE Stiftung, Essl Stiftung, Turnauer Sitftung, Schweighofer Stiftung, Humer Stiftung und Unruhe Stiftung). The aim of Tu was, dann tut sich was. is to spark sustainable development in structurally weak regions of Austria.
