The Yearbook Ecology 2015 was published at the end of August 2014. This issue's focus is on re-naturation: society in harmony with nature, which is examined from economic, social, technical and ecological points of view. Ecologic Institute is one of the institutes supporting this yearbook and contributed three articles in the 2015 edition:
Jenny Tröltzsch, Nico Stelljes and Ulf Stein wrote an article on ecological flood protection in the chapter "Renaturation – Concepts and Projects."
Grit Martinez and Mike K. Orbach compare coastal protection in Europe and the USA in the chapter "Persistent human-nature conflicts."
In the same chapter, Felix Döhler, Max Grünig and Susanne Langsdorf examine the topic "Eco-City - Vision and Reality".
