Green infrastructure for better living

The City of Munich collaborates with three associations for landscape and intermunicipal management.

  • Together with the "Regional Management München Südwest" we will involve citizens in a “landscape treasure hunt” for the southwestern region of Munich
  •  In the northwest of Munich the "Verein Dachauer Moos" manages a mire landscape between Munich and Dachau. Together with LOS_DAMA! we organize the intermunicipal conference "Let´s do Moor"
  • The "Heideflächenverein" has been managing the heathland area north of Munich across municipal borders since 1990, with a focus on conservation and recreation. Together we aim to improve the visualisation of an existing landscape plan.


Cooperation with the Regionalmanagement München Südwest

Shortly before Christmas 2017, the City of Munich and the Regional Management Munich Southwest (RMMSW) invited local key interest groups from both nature conservation and recreation to an informal stroll along the river Würm. In march 2018 the RMMSW and the City of Munich held a workshop with the same participants to define basic components for a 'landscape treasure map'. This map aims to highlight the scenic qualities and invites locals to explore them. The Technical University of Munich and its students supported the workshop with creative inputs. The 'landscape treasure hunt' took place from April to June 2018 using an online survey. The official opening was on 22nd April 2018 at a public market event in Gauting, two market events in Krailling (13th May 2018) and Neuaubing (9th June 2018) followed. More than 200 people participated in the landscape treasure hunt! The final `treasure map´is now published and can be found here: http://www.rmmsw.de/

Cooperation with the Verein Dachauer Moos

 The "Dachauer Moos" is a fen landscape northwest of Munich and was cultivated relatively late. The landscape with its fields, meadows and moor forests, its streams and ditches, its historical canals and avenues was and still is a cultural heritage and part of the local identity.  But at the same time many requirements and interests on the open space come together, like agricultural and horticultural production, infrastructure and urban development. It is also an important wildlife habitat and a recreational area.

On October 8th 2018 the Verein Dachauer Moos e. V. (Association for the Dachau Marshland) and the City of Munich together with the Bavarian State Ministry of the Environment and Consumer Protection invited to the intercommunal conference „Let´s do Moor“ on landscape development in the Dachau Marshland. The conference opened with personal statements on the Dachauer Moos by people who work and live there. The political representatives focused on gaining a common perspective to improve green infrastructure. A market of possibilities showed successful approaches of integrated landscape development from nearby and abroad. The ministry concluded the day with a retrospect on ten years Bavarian climate protection program and a scientific look on marshlands in the local and global climate protection context. The conference offered an exchange on multiple governance levels and connected decision makers with nature conservationists and citizens. The general value of urban open spaces and especially marshlands got highlighted and the common goal to protect this cultural and natural heritage was clearer defined.
