Managing Green Infrastructure in Central European Landscapes

MaGICLandscapes introduces to the green infrastructure concept and its benefits. In close cooperation with local stakeholders the project partners elaborate strategies and action plans for enhancing the existing  green infrastructure resource in Central Europe. The project promotes sustainable land-use by providing land managers, policy makers and communities with tools and knowledge. This will help them to assess green infrastructure planning and conservation approaches, also taking into account the transnational level and ensuring that mismatched management approaches are reduced.


WHAT IS GREEN INFRASTRUCTURE?

Entwicklung und Vernetzung von Grünräumen in der Dübener Heide  

Bürgerhaus Eilenburg, 28. Mai 2019, 10-16 Uhr

Begriffe wie „Hitzesommer“, „Starkregen“ und „Artensterben“ prägen mehr denn je unsere täglichen Nachrichten. Sie bezeichnen Folgen auf die Gesundheit und Lebensqualität der Menschen, die Biologische Vielfalt sowie die dauerhafte Nutzbarkeit unserer Naturgüter. Ihnen entgegenzuwirken, stellt eine der wesentlichen globalen Herausforderungen des 21. Jahrhunderts dar.

Aktuell sind auf europäischer Ebene hierzu mit der EU-Strategie zur Grünen Infrastruktur sowie dem Konzept der Ökosystemdienstleistungen planerisch-strategische Ansätze entwickelt, welche es nun sowohl zu konkretisieren als auch zukünftig in regionale Planungen zu implementieren gilt.

Wie dies am Beispiel der Dübener Heide gelingen kann, soll der Workshop in Eilenburg aufzeigen. Während der Veranstaltung wird u. a. das Konzept der Grünen Infrastruktur vorgestellt. Die Verbesserung der Kommunikation und der Wahrnehmung von grüner Infrastruktur und damit einem (Teil-)Wert Naturparkes Dübener Heide nach „innen“ — also für die Bewohner — soll dabei im Vordergrund stehen.

Der Workshop richtet sich an VertreterInnen von Kommunen, (Fach-)Behörden, Landnutzer, Regionale Planungsstellen, Forschungseinrichtungen, Hochschulen und Verbände aus der Region Dübener Heide sowie an Digitalexperten, Marketing– und Kommunikationsexperten, die sich mit der Verbesserung, Kommunikation und der Wahrnehmung von grüner Infrastruktur befassen.

AESOP Congress 2019

PLANNING FOR TRANSITION

This year's AESOP* Annual Congress invites scholars and practitioners to present and discuss case studies of cities and projects that have engaged in meeting challenging situations – supporting transitions in urban contexts. Specifically, it is aimed at offering an understanding of the forms of knowledge, concepts, tools, and skills needed to plan and address transition in times of rapid climate and societal changes. Furthermore, it seeks to explore whether (and how) managing such changes has brought any overall reconsideration of the city design model and towards more general institutional reconfigurations.

MaGICLandscapes will be presented by representatives of project partner Città Metropolitana di Torino in the special session "Planning and Designing Green Infrastructures."
