Infrastructure development in Germany must be increasingly geared towards increased climate targets and the need for decarbonization. At the same time, public participation is still needed to involve the population in the upcoming change processes and to ensure democratic achievements.

What are the possibilities, limits and sensible approaches to accelerating planning?
This event is part of the "Knowledge for Change" series of events celebrating Ecornet's 10th anniversary.
Ten years ago, leading independent institutes of environmental and sustainability research in Germany joined forces to form the Ecological Research Network (Ecornet) in order to bring their combined knowledge to the scientific community and society. With their practice-oriented, transdisciplinary research, the Ecornet institutes have been accompanying — and actively shaping — socio-ecological change for decades.
