Network Meeting Nature Preservation - Regional Council Tübingen, Germany


On Friday, 15 November 2019, the Network for Nature Conservation invites to a plenary event at the Regierungspräsidium Tübingen in Baden-Württemberg, Germany. There will be lectures and workshops on climate change, biodiversity and nature conservation. Gloria Kraus (International Project Coordinator of AlpBioEco, City of Sigmaringen) and Ulfried Miller (Friends of the Earth Germany) will present the AlpBioEco project in the context of regional bioeconomics. 

With the Fridays For Future (FFF) manifestations, it has become public awareness: Climate change is coming and some of it is already underway. Nature conservation is also affected and must face up to this change. At the same time, current studies show that insect mortality is progressing at a rate that alarmed the public last year. How is nature conservation in Baden-Württemberg dealing with these challenges? And what can conservation work do in a regional and global network? These are the guiding questions behind the plenary programme.

To kick off the event, activists of Fridays For Future (FFF) are invited to introduce the FFF-movement with its goals and demands. Forms of organisation and action of the FFF-movement will be presented, too. 
The specialist lectures and workshops in the afternoon will adress the following topics:

1) Climate change and nature conservation in Baden-Württemberg 

Experts of the LUBW Baden-Württemberg, Dr. Kai Höpker and Norbert Höll, will present previous climatic conditions and their assumed future development. Expected effects on the living environment are illuminated as well as requirements for nature conservationtion and possible adaptation strategies. Furthermore, there will be an opportunity for speakers, FFF-Actives and the audience to discuss the topic in a panel discussion and to deepen it in a workshop.

2) Flowering area - fact check: Nature conservation value for insects and birds

What are the benefits of flowering areas for insects and birds? The speakers Erwin Rennwald and Dr. Nils Anthes question the benefits of flower seeds for insects. e.g. butterflies, and birds from an animal-ecological point of view and show possible courses of action. Goal in the afternoon Workshop will be to jointly develop concrete recommendations to put ecologically effective measures into practice.

3) Acting locally and regionally! Bioeconomy on the regional level

Gloria Kraus, international project coordinator of AlpBioEco and Ulfried Miller, Friends of the Earth Association Bodensee-Oberschwaben, will inform about opportunities and risks of bioeconomic projects and the development of bio-based value chains. The workshop will create space for an exchange with representatives of other local-regional marketing projects from the administrative district of Tübingen.
