The Academy for Territorial Development in the Leibniz Association (ARL), the Bavarian Ministry of Economic Affairs, Regional Development and Energy (StMWi) and the Interreg Alpine Space Project “OpenSpaceAlps” jointly organized the international conference “Towards sustainable spatial development - transnational lessons on the safeguarding of open spaces and the reduction of land take” in order to facilitate transnational exchange on that matter in the Alpine Space. Initially planned as a live event in Berchtesgaden (DE), the conference had to be transformed into an online event due to the ongoing restrictions on business travel. On Tuesday, 19/10/2021, 80 professionals and scientists from various Alpine Space countries participated in this online conference and discussed about sustainable spatial planning approaches.
