Traveling exhibition and brochure show visions for a sustainable Lusatia.

How can Lusatia develop up to the year 2050 - without coal mining and instead ecologically sustainable and worth living in for the local people? In 2021, the planning laboratory "Space Images Lausitz 2050" was dedicated to this question. Four interdisciplinary teams have designed their visions for the region undergoing structural change as multi-layered spatial images. From February 2nd to March 4th, the Leibniz Institute for Ecological Spatial Development (IÖR) is showing the results in an exhibition in the Center for Building Culture.

Visions, thought experiments, food for thought - that's what the "Spatial Images Lausitz 2050" should be and offer. They show how much potential there is in Lusatia and what role regional planning strategies can play in shaping regional structural change. Four planning teams from Germany and abroad as well as numerous experts were invited to design, discuss and further develop approaches and visions for the future of Lusatia as part of the planning laboratory "Spatial Images Lausitz 2050 - Designing Sustainable Transformation". The results make the diverse possibilities of the region visible. These are not only to be found in their small and medium-sized towns or in the scenic features such as lakes and sometimes rough landscapes. They also lie in the numerous initiatives, networks and committed people as well as in traditional and new technologies and business ideas. The spatial images illustrate how this potential can be activated and linked in order to further develop Lusatia into an attractive region and to promote a "good life" in the long term. They are primarily aimed at experts from urban and regional planning, but laypersons can also discover interesting ideas for Lusatia in the spatial images.

The planning laboratory is part of the project "Scientific support and monitoring of the transformation in Lusatia" at the Leibniz Institute for Ecological Spatial Development and the associated interdisciplinary center for transformative urban redevelopment in Görlitz, funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research.
