Conference: Luxembourg 2050 – Prospects for a Regenerative City-Landscape (FR & D) | 22.03.21 | 17h30 | online

With its urban-architectural and landscape consultation “Luxembourg in Transition” launched in 2020, the Ministry of Energy and Spatial Planning wanted to stimulate the development of territorial visions for a decarbonised and resilient future by 2050 for the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and its border territories.

A Luxembourgish team, among nine others, took up the challenge.

Our interdisciplinary team, composed of researchers, planners and practitioners from the University of Luxembourg (UL), the Luxembourg Institute of Science and Technology (LIST), the Centre for Ecological Learning (CELL), the Institute for Organic Agriculture (IBLA), and the Office for Landscape Morphology (OLM), will focus on five most pertinent and closely intertwined topics:

– agro-ecology
– regenerative energy systems
– alternative economies
– governance/participation-processes

in addition to regional planning, urban planning and design, and architecture.

The team made the assumption that technological progress alone will not suffice to bring about the necessary ecological transition. It committed itself to exploring the prospects of a more structural transformation of our society into an age of post-growth.
In January 2021 the team submitted its report for the first phase, with a main focus on the metrics for a decarbonised and resilient future.
During this conference the authors will present the results of their work and explore eight prospects for Luxembourg 2050.
