 “Hardly any other region in Germany is subject to such fundamental and continual changes in the landscape to such an extent as Lausitz. For over 100 years, landscapes have given way to a large area of lignite mining, in order to subsequently emerge again in a process of gradual restoration of the areas claimed by mining. "(BTE 2013). Germany aims to phase out coal by 2035 and become climate neutral by 2050. What does this mean for the region and what can it stand for in the year 2100? The course deals with the related issues of landscape change, climate change, structural change and energy change. The aim is to develop visions of the future for the region and concrete creative impulses for a corresponding process.
