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?

MaGICLandscapes Final Conference & Green Infrastructure Symposium

Over the last two and half years, 10 project partners from 5 countries in the frame of the Interreg Central Europe project MaGICLandscapes have been intensively researching the functionality of green infrastructure (GI) in the peri-urban and rural context. An integrated network of functioning green spaces is a basic recipe for enhancing the resilience of cities and regions with regard to the effects of climate change, such as extreme weather conditions and biodiversity loss.

The results of the project and the tools developed will be presented at the Final Conference on 27th May 2020 at the Technische Universität Dresden. You are cordially invited to attend this conference. The content will include transnational and regional studies on the spatial analysis of green infrastructure in central Europe, its ecological functionality and its ecosystem services and potential. With reference to 9 case study areas the project partners will demonstrate how selected elements of green infrastructure are effective at the local level and which public benefits they can provide. They will discuss recommendations how existing GI elements can be enhanced and interconnected, and how new green infrastructure can be created.

You are also invited to attend the International Symposium on Green Infrastructure on the following day, 28th May 2020, at the same venue. At this occasion experts from science and practice from all over Europe will meet to reflect on green infrastructure and its services from a variety of perspectives and experiences. The symposium will stimulate identification and discussion of opportunities and challenges for a wider inter-sectoral recognition of the concept of green infrastructure, its benefits and its adoption in policies and planning at the European, national and regional level.

We are looking forward to welcoming You at the conference and at the symposium!

Deadline for registration is the 30th of April 2020.
