  • 8. 1. The gap of the map - but• beautiful landscapes including rich potentials (energy, food, tourism) – without people ?• demographic change of high gradient,• exemplarily for many similar rural regions (urbanization)• sustainable infrastructure needs new orientation→ What can be done by communes ?…
  • 9. 2. Rural Areas in Central Europe & Renewable Energies „renewable“ instead of fossil fuels & nuclear power i.e.: • area instead of deposits • productivity instead of time • decentralised instead of centralised • functional change of net •… •„plate vs. tank“? • increasing pressure on area !
  • 10. 3. (Bio)EnergyVillages – a path to participation
  • 11. 3. (Bio)EnergyVillages – a path to participation
  • 12. • participation • innovation• efficiency / reduced consumption • heat • electricity • sustainable land use
  • 13. 3. (Bio)EnergyVillages – a path to participationCapital flows for fossil fuels out of Germany(gas, oil and coal): downscaled for Pasewalk – 2000: 32,3 Mrd. Euro  2000: 4,5 Mio. € self supply – 2005: 51,3 Mrd. Euro  2005: 7,1 Mio. € develops – 2008: 83,6 Mrd. Euro  2008: 11,6 Mio. € communal  2010: self determination – 2010: 63,2 Mrd. Euro 8,7 Mio. € (Quelle: Statistisches Bundesamt) (bezogen auf 11.319 Einwohner, Stand zum 31.12.2010; Quelle: Statistisches Landesamt M-V)
  • 14. 4. Energy & Food – Chances for Re-Regionalization
  • 15. What is „Garden of the Metropolises“ standing for ?Why do we think that it is sustainable ?• Re-Regionalisation lowers cultural and personal alienation• New rural-urban alliances grow• i.e.: • numerous individual entrepreneurships dig forgotten (hidden) treasures • empowerment of citizens enhances efficiency in the national economics scale• sustainability is more likely by • minimisation of transportation (resources) • low scale lowers dependence on global volatility
  • 16. 5. Can Regionalization Guarantee Sustainability ?• Revitalisation of rural areas needs the development of genuine autochthonous added value instead of “financial breathing”• energy• food• services•…• cultural change !• „Stabilisierungsraum“ ? - feed instead of being fed !
  • 17. More Satisfaction With Less Resource Consumption –Sustainability is not guaranteed – but it is more likely bynumerous individual perspectives
