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.

International Lynx Day

In this day, presentation, excursion, quizzes and more events take place in Czech Republic, Germany, Austria, Slovenia and Italia.

For more information, check regularly our website

The Eurasian lynx is a highly endangered species, protected under national laws and the EU Habitat Directive. The main threats for lynx survival are illegal killing, happening due to lack of acceptance by key stakeholders and habitat fragmentation hindering migration. In addition, non-harmonised (national) monitoring and management hamper a coordinated approach. The challenge is to integrate lynx monitoring, conservation and management into a common strategy on transnational level.

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.
