Workshop II:“Agricultural land use measures for reducing hot-spots in the Lausitz region: adapting to climate change and synergies with local tourism“
11. October 2023
10:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m.
will be available soon
It is to be expected that climate change will increase summer periods with high temperatures and little precipitation, with effects on the attractiveness of cycle tourism in the region. However, various adaptation measures can be taken. These include, for example, planting trees that provide protection from intense sunlight and planting hedges, which also beautify the landscape and have positive effects on species conservation. Other options include rerouting cycle paths to cooler areas along waterways or through forests, and creating cool rest areas.
Your experiences and knowledge as regional actors are of great importance to us, as we would like to include your perspectives in the course of the project. At the workshop, we would like to present the project to you and discuss the following topics together:
- Soil management methods for climate change adaption (short- and long-term perspectives)
- Cultivation of special crops, tree and hedge planting, orchard meadows and/or extension of the crop rotation for climate change adaptation
- Potentials of a link between local agriculture and cycle tourism.
Two further workshops, in which we would like to present and discuss interim results as well as final results, are planned until the end of the project in October 2025.
