Participatory scenario planning for sustainable land use in Lüneburg, Germany

As a part of a transdisciplinary research project with local stakeholders we developed plausible scenarios for sustainable land use. We applied the formative scenario analysis (Scholz and Tietje, 2002) using a diverse set of participatory formats. Preliminary and final results were illustrated.

We pursue various goals by conducting a scenario analysis. The scenarios aim to set prospects for a normative development based on the UN’s sustainable development goals (SDGs) in the project region. This is the basis for measures and instruments, which are to be created within a next step. The mutual design process between science and real-world actors not only aimed to create a common understanding of sustainable land use futures, but to facilitate exchange between different perspectives on the topic. Thus, reduce potential conflicts among the involved stakeholders. Furthermore, the four chosen scenarios were visualized and translated into an exhibition, which was presented to local citizens and actors to initiate a debate on sustainable land use.
