After analyzing challenges of urban ecology, we will develop options of resolving these with Green Infrastructure and apply them on the redevelopment of a post-industrial productive urban landscape.
We will use the borough Huckarde of the City of Dortmund as a case study. It currently serves as a Living Lab for developing nature-based solutions for post-industrial regeneration within the Institute’s research project proGIreg.
