5th Workshop of LRG’s German partner organisation

Protected Areas between Conservation, Economic Development and Politics

Odernheim, Rhineland-Palatinate, Germany

20-22 September 2017

The programme features ten presentations on topics such as landscape theory and protected areas, people-nature relations, transboundary conservation in the Wadden Sea National Parks, wind power developments in protected areas and the neoliberalisation of nature conservation. A field trip to a nearby large nature park offers opportunities to discuss synergies and conflicts with staff members and local stakeholders. LRG members pay a reduced fee of € 35 (full fee € 60), which includes two lunches and the field trip.

This is already the fifth in a series of annual seminars, which have developed into a meeting place of German-speaking landscape researchers interested in the social and political dimensions of landscapes. The event is co-funded by the Landscape Research Group.
