Anmerkung: Registration latest until Friday, 24.04.2020 5pm. The module is primarily addressed to students of the MSc. Programme "Nature Conservation and Landscape Planning" and "Ecological Engineering". Further interested students on request.


After the module, students are able to analyse and evaluate existing problems in landscapes and, on this basis, to derive objectives and measures for the improvement of the state of the landscape against the background of existing environmental objectives, and to articulate this both oral and written.


Although the term ‘Green Infrastructure’ (GI) is relatively new, its ideas are related to earlier concepts of urban planning and also to biodiversity conservation. Since the concept of GI emerged in the United States in the late 1990’s to tackle urban sprawl it evolved very dynamically on different scales, emphasizing various objectives. Despite different conceptualizations and definitions, GI’s aims are commonly understood to create multifunctional networks of green spaces, with connectivity and multifunctionality as two inherent key principles. A recent milestone to promote GI in Europe was the adoption of the European GI Strategy by the European Commission in 2013 as part of the six main targets of the EU Biodiversity Strategy to 2020. This strategy defines green infrastructure as “a strategically planned network of natural and semi-natural areas with other environmental features designed and managed to deliver a wide range of ecosystem services” (European Commission, 2013). It extends the focus of species and habitat conservation of Natura2000 and reflects a holistic approach to natural areas and other open spaces in urban and non-urban surroundings, taking into account a variety of society’s demands, contributing to societal health, human well-being, and the green economy.
