Environmental Planning Research Group

We research at the interface of man and nature

The Environmental Planning Research Group aims to make the use of nature more sustainable through practice-oriented planning in order to better protect the biodiversity of sensitive habitats and to continue to provide people with inspiring experiences of nature.

Therefore, we work and research at the interface of people and nature. These planning tasks bring together the different interests from nature and landscape conservation, construction, agriculture as well as tourism and leisure.

Uses and changes shape our landscape.

The Environmental Planning Research Group develops sustainable solutions for this.
