Our themes in teaching and research encompass the protection of nature and the environment. This includes the coordination and moderation of different land-use demands, while pursuing sustainable development.

Our themes in teaching and research encompass the protection of nature and the environment. This includes the coordination and moderation of different land-use demands, while pursuing sustainable development.

We work in fields which run from the scientific foundations of species and habitat protection,  the methodology of analysing an eco-system, landscape aesthetics to integration of recreation and leisure activities, legal and economic instruments, strategies for spatial planning and development and questions of implementation and participation.

In co-operaton with other Institutes of the Leibniz University, further important issues like communicative planning, flood protection or the use of renewable energies and their impact on environmental planning, can be considered.
