    Special Session:

    Transformation of lignite regions: Rhenish mining district and Lusatia

    How can a region be shaped?

    Decades of change in the lignite regions have had a profound impact on their shape. The decision to phase out coal-fired power generation now offers the opportunity to initiate forward-looking regional development processes. Which local and regional approaches are suitable for a sustainable transformation in the coming decades? How do they contribute to a high-quality design of the regions? What can the Rhenish mining district and Lusatia learn from each other?
