Avant-garde approaches for sustainable regional development
The region is characterized by growing trends in Lübeck and the western and southern districts as well as shrinking trends in the eastern districts. The VorAB project identifies structural obstacles to inter-municipal cooperation and explores the potential of avant-garde approaches to sustainable regional development in the transformation fields forestry, agriculture and energy.
Goals and approach
VorAB identifies justice, democracy and valorization problems in urban-rural relations. It researches blockades as well as preventive action practices and designs structural innovations for fair and resilient land and resource use in the Lübeck region. Together with avant-garde actors, transformative and regional economic practices for the region as well as networks and cooperations beyond the region are developed. VorAB works with inter- and trans-disciplinary methods such as constellation analysis or qualitative interviews.
Expected results and transfer
The result is a status quo analysis of blockades and potentials for regional transformation processes in the fields of energy, agriculture and forestry. Indicators and innovations for fair and resilient urban-rural conditions in the region are brought together in an innovation concept. Strategic approaches and concrete measures for the further development of the region form a regional action plan and a transfer concept for adjacent areas.
