OpenSpaceAlps - Sustainable development of alpine open spaces by enhancing spatial planning governance

The Project OpenSpaceAlps - Sustainable development of alpine open spaces by enhancing spatial planning governance - was approved on the fourth INTERREG V B tender of the Alpine Space Programme. It spatially relates to the Alpine region and to the area covered by EUSALP - EU Strategy for the Alpine Space Region. Seven institutions from Austria, France, Italy, Germany and Slovenia are involved in the implementation of the project. A partner from Germany is the Chair of Geography and Regional Science at the University of Wuerzburg. The project's aim is to foster sustainable development of the Alpine Space by maintaining open spaces as part of alpine Green Infrastructure through an interlinked, multi-level transnational spatial governance, considering the integration of ecosystems functions and needs into policies. We improve the capacities of spatial and sectoral planners in their role for balancing different land uses. By applying a participatory approach, we strengthen and coordinate regional, national and trans-national spatial planning processes. Thus, we contribute to the programme goals by improving the integration of ecosystem services into the policy system of the Alpine Space. Hence, initiating and moderating a process towards the adoption of new spatial planning approaches in the Alpine Space countries is a must-have.
