hum hum hum
00:00:06
hum
00:00:08
so um
00:00:12
ladies and gentlemen i'm i'm having here
00:00:16
some sixty slides about until i don't want to scare you
00:00:21
ah mm hum so retreat reduced or research to twenty slides
00:00:28
um in order to tell you about or a complex research study within twenty minutes
00:00:35
i what will make it on was uh so just tell me the time
00:00:42
um
00:00:44
some of the team members are sitting here some stated whole this wonderful mm
00:00:51
some stayed at home and those uh uh what joining
00:00:55
me uh i'm like even i what i'm saying
00:00:59
i'm ready to intervene and uh correctly so
00:01:06
i'm i'm talking about the region
00:01:10
um would located in the western part of it in germany of for those work for
00:01:16
familiar with the area geography of europe um
00:01:21
and this is a perfect example to examine urban development
00:01:26
phases over the last one hundred fifty years
00:01:29
but also to rethink the current principles
00:01:34
strategies and climbing up patterns
00:01:36
of of development upheld by planning authorities and planning institutions indeed
00:01:43
this region is also small scale representation of the lots
00:01:48
could scale problems brought about by industrial development
00:01:52
and the industrial revolution so here are a couple of pictures
00:01:58
i'm saying uh oh one um this is a of
00:02:06
one hundred fifty years ago the bean a syrian
00:02:10
landscape countryside with villages and small towns connected
00:02:15
back country roads and crossed by a european trade
00:02:20
route so industrial revolution change that completely
00:02:26
and um later it was as you can see here
00:02:30
by a coal mines steel factories blast furnaces
00:02:34
and infrastructures like the rubber tracks freeways energy
00:02:39
transport lines and slack keeps um
00:02:42
so um this has been working for a four oh
00:02:48
say one hundred he is like a machine
00:02:51
uh with the system of collaboration today this region is fragmented
00:02:59
and dysfunctional um and these uh signs are visible
00:03:06
so we're region can be considered as in the top row of
00:03:09
for so few all even better has the hundred per scene
00:03:13
as noted there the for more collaborative the forces uh had collapsed actually
00:03:20
uh participation on collaboration is dead decision making process
00:03:25
is our centralise the and top down
00:03:29
so the following um concept is a story
00:03:32
of regenerating and repairing this super system
00:03:38
uh with the support of collaborative forces um in order to give you the
00:03:45
message um as you can imagine this is quite complex and the
00:03:51
um i think we think we we need to jump
00:03:56
zoom in and zoom out as you can see
00:03:59
uh in the lower align so at first i half the
00:04:04
giving of the big uh image of the region
00:04:07
uh and the brief overview about the essentials of the challenges uh
00:04:12
i would like to step into the local community as an
00:04:15
example of the local common duty is a cold for the
00:04:19
off as you can see in the in the uh
00:04:23
the map here so i want to get into the uh the because capes and the the history
00:04:30
on this on most on site in the community and then i will again zoom out
00:04:37
um eh a leading us into the fragmented social governance
00:04:43
and uh urban structures showing the facts and problems as
00:04:49
well as uh the complexity of the tasks um
00:04:55
i need to ms room in again and to the district in order to
00:05:02
look at the community of this place looking closely into the potentials
00:05:06
a possible re appropriation of space uh on the district level
00:05:12
of uh to see in a different scenario so zooming in is only out
00:05:16
helping me on one hand to develop concepts for the overall region
00:05:21
um on the other hand create less
00:05:24
abstract scenarios uh for a
00:05:29
community which stands for different communities in that region
00:05:39
so zooming in
00:05:41
so let's scale down to the community of road of explaining the cons complexity and the conflicts of the system
00:05:49
um since almost fifty years this community presents crises of governance uh uh
00:05:55
so on one hand there is a prominent conflict between the priorities
00:05:59
after the municipalities institutions all the regional administration and
00:06:05
and institutions and the needs of the community
00:06:10
it will be about the existing road infrastructure followed by increasing
00:06:15
emissions uh of c. o. two p. m. two point
00:06:18
five or ten as well as an o. two noise in other pollution pollutants the city wants to build
00:06:25
uh more and white remotes for more cars of course of the
00:06:27
car infrastructure has the absolute priority and the way of planning
00:06:32
uh hasn't changed since the last um seventy is
00:06:37
for the last forty years the community on the other side is fighting in
00:06:41
opposing the project of constructing a new highway and whitening the other um
00:06:50
so there are or facial meetings uh to inform not
00:06:54
to just uh uh let them participate energy just
00:06:57
inform the citizen about the plans but the decision makers to listen what citizen want this happened
00:07:03
um for instance an instance by adding more lanes uh uh the into
00:07:10
and it has led to employing a lawyer even by the
00:07:13
community to oppose plans but apparently even this did
00:07:17
not work um for the last forty years the the comedian phoned up is opposing the project and um
00:07:24
they want a covered highway um uh uh
00:07:29
of course to get the cancel the noise and to reduce the pollution but
00:07:35
this is being said to be expensive in other cities in germany
00:07:39
other countries is is happening uh quite often as i know from time burke from munich et cetera et cetera
00:07:46
so the conflict in front of is the story of iteration a typical situation
00:07:52
but very closely uh uh uh to this part um
00:07:57
in the where there is this plate uh
00:08:00
saying to a fellow citizens in this plane uh a highway has almost destroyed the scenic landscape
00:08:06
and the action uh a citizen action committees forgot to the to the book which is a long stretch of road have
00:08:12
stopped beside it please help us to sustain the nature here
00:08:15
and elsewhere so this is a kind of tom stone
00:08:20
remembering that there was a long successful fight and feels full public discussion the the discussion
00:08:26
but this was leading to a public uh really announcement of these highway plans
00:08:34
yeah
00:08:37
let's go get it a little bit more close um to the situation
00:08:42
uh i want to talk about the is because capes uh that in as a method
00:08:48
to uh but look at the different layer as a and in no time line
00:08:55
um so first of all we we want to look at the p. i. industrial area
00:09:00
as it looks um one a hundred and not actually actually two hundred years ago
00:09:06
there was a system grow slowly over the centuries
00:09:11
oh and with different communities and uh villages and towns and i mentioned that already um
00:09:18
it was even the small displays shot searches for a lot with
00:09:21
less than one hundred inhabitants uh this had a role um
00:09:28
within this large natural system of dependencies and into relations
00:09:34
there wasn't it to change it in exchange between little town is at
00:09:39
frito is ions villages uh this was the time when mine start
00:09:46
uh this was a time where uh oh natural collaboration uh uh
00:09:53
was based on physical and not physical connections between
00:10:00
it's economics road and what infrastructure so
00:10:06
this was the start of the uh industrial
00:10:09
revolution and um it's happened um uh
00:10:16
oh i'm sorry here's
00:10:22
after the industrial revolution um collaboration meant something else it was um
00:10:29
another relationship formed by the labour down in the mine
00:10:33
the steel industry in close vicinity and the pressure of uses units of
00:10:39
labour so most important connection when not the small country roads anymore
00:10:44
um yeah but a regional that work of huge of big
00:10:49
in a infrastructure uh which is a a private
00:10:53
and public we always prided energy pipelines gas
00:10:58
all steam and regional overhead power lines
00:11:02
the settlements for the work 'cause we're both very close to
00:11:06
these industrial areas uh there was a link between industry
00:11:12
energy in economy society was just another element of it
00:11:18
it was just locked into that system of the three others and i mentioned before
00:11:27
the priority in these industrial times uh was to connect um the relevant in
00:11:34
regional industries one to another but not the people after the industrial relations
00:11:39
these use less use this remains of the old infrastructures um
00:11:45
bill to at least at at last a long time have created void it's connected by unused
00:11:51
areas dysfunctional created left over infrastructure as you as you can see here uh
00:11:59
infrastructure of the mining infrastructure of of uh
00:12:03
uh joining industries so these are actually a brownfield areas
00:12:09
in the vicinity of uh our community we're looking clothes of
00:12:14
so this is kind of landscape of leftovers i'm just functional creating
00:12:19
dysfunctional conflicts uh in many parts of the region region
00:12:24
and um collaboration is not existing anymore in fact
00:12:29
it's it it's a crisis of collaboration
00:12:32
i like to continue with this uh the period i'm
00:12:37
one specific aspect needs to be it noted here
00:12:42
the industrial revolution has one big leaguers see which will
00:12:45
last for eternity because of the mining and
00:12:49
the local to uh the local production large parts of the rue area of the the rule region
00:12:55
our areas with substance caused by the mining as you can see here in
00:13:00
this little picture this was before the cold has mean dig out
00:13:05
and if you dig all the cool out the the as uh the the web these subsidies by
00:13:12
sometimes up to twenty meter could do this will create hills and valleys actually in new landscape
00:13:19
and the need of pumping the water the way because the
00:13:23
water and then a table is still the same
00:13:27
so without pumping the one fifth uh without any prompting in that region
00:13:32
one for out of the war region would be a huge like
00:13:37
that would be flattered as pull those and residential play areas
00:13:42
down towns round feels roads and rubber tracks would it would just be part of a big like
00:13:54
so currently um the way area has the biggest
00:14:00
um density of highways in germany so in this small area you
00:14:05
can see already a too big highways crossing had this community
00:14:11
the police intrigue region has four million people with
00:14:17
fifty different cities so actually the way area is
00:14:22
a european metropolitan city without a name because
00:14:27
it's everything very close um the souls will the governance of the rubber fragmentation can be
00:14:34
experience throughout the region in all fields with all consequences and at different places
00:14:42
and here you get an overview um of the
00:14:47
uh consequences and how the citizens experience it
00:14:52
um hum these of the threats so that it is a lot of unemployment better benefit
00:14:59
there is a premature death because of respiratory diseases
00:15:04
because of pollution because of noise and uh
00:15:10
these slides uh i mention the very first beginning uh will prove
00:15:15
that there uh there is really the life except expectancy alone
00:15:20
this stretch uh of the road in the middle of the worker who area is is less
00:15:26
there is a lot of air pollution by you know to uh uh and uh mm
00:15:31
the ethnicity is a around essen are frightened by
00:15:36
uh the mobility stop uh uh and
00:15:40
the this on the mobility is uh actually frightened for the inhabitants and all the workers
00:15:47
and finally the whole area uh has a very bad
00:15:50
shape from renewable sources uh the where a uh
00:15:53
there's still cool and all instead of renewable energies as you can see you by the numbers
00:16:00
yeah
00:16:02
five minutes well we will um
00:16:08
i skip that it so the fragmentation of this area
00:16:13
is is is now being seen here um
00:16:17
is this is we present in the representative as i mentioned
00:16:20
and let me just go into the collaboration concept um
00:16:26
the creation i just quoted the creation of the industrial revolution was
00:16:30
a remarkable about of imagination in that area what comes next
00:16:36
needs to be even so more so so we we
00:16:40
need a vision for developing this area um
00:16:45
and a one person of our community says we need a vision
00:16:52
we need an idea we need a tentative instead of just
00:16:56
repairing it by piecemeal uh um and little sector all the steps
00:17:03
we need we shouldn't vision for the next uh for the future for the next
00:17:07
fifty is and the local potentials from um from uh our point of view
00:17:14
it is instead of looking at the small changes we need to make a uh get into big ideas
00:17:20
the what area and the reason is too big to change and to to uh
00:17:26
to modify it as a as a whole um the big infrastructure of the um
00:17:32
industries asian is almost untouchable need unconventional
00:17:36
and disruptive approaches so instead of
00:17:39
having a top down we choose a bottom up approach with the friend off
00:17:44
um community we have a couple of problems we have leftovers infrastructure we have pulled the
00:17:50
areas which could be flooded immediately it to solve all problems actually um we um
00:17:57
and we have the uh uh a highway a forty you you can see here
00:18:01
with the red uh a line and we have a lively active community
00:18:08
and the trends which show for the uh future development uh where it is
00:18:12
possible so we take the problems as potentials and shots chances um
00:18:20
we have a community based organisations first of all the
00:18:24
cool the coal mines could be used as
00:18:27
pumped storage hydropower stations as you can see you on the upper right hand side um
00:18:34
where commands down in the mine hold water um a them
00:18:39
after a generating power with the turbines the water
00:18:43
from the upper reservoir running down through
00:18:46
the turbines in their mind this is completed complimentary to the foot of what hike
00:18:50
in this the the area generated a generating electricity and uh the a
00:18:56
buyer most power a plant altogether at creating a local energy cluster
00:19:02
so local lakes whether the community these little relates to uh create more storage
00:19:09
for the first for the pop storage power plants but also
00:19:12
useful for the local recreation and environmental quality in these
00:19:17
enables the energy class or as a system is creating a locally
00:19:22
run company making money to be invested into the upgrade off week
00:19:26
or a community so this was a completely turned around
00:19:31
uh for uh a friend of in terms of economic economy ecology sustainability and socially
00:19:39
um this will be the framework for scenarios um uh on
00:19:45
the economy the economy by the education and the investment
00:19:50
yeah in into the neighbourhood issues so all uh measures and actions will be uh organised
00:19:56
along with criteria minimising the impact on climate change uh reducing c. o. two emissions
00:20:03
uh urban health reducing uh uh find particle matter and i
00:20:08
know too and of course working with the local community
00:20:12
at first sight it might look like it's more radical community actually like gastric suitable x.
00:20:18
uh against the big decision makers but today we need again mention that a
00:20:25
comprehensive integrated approach which we with regard to the or the system
00:20:31
we need a a change going i had it will need to change
00:20:35
agents here is it a community and not a single person
00:20:39
starting with new attitudes and starting with a new and when it's
00:20:44
with regard to the red and a good and highway
00:20:50
of course in twenty fifty there will be needed regional mobility patterns completely
00:20:57
it being changed there will be intermodal mobility with uh uh which
00:21:02
is is a dominated by a new system of short middle
00:21:07
and long rage a public transport to be completed by active mobility walking and biking as
00:21:13
well as autonomous cars and taxis so the a forty will be is silent um
00:21:20
wrote a with less cars sure cars small the passes
00:21:24
let's have the thread less annoying and more integrated but this could be a um in a a
00:21:33
i it by another scenario is is starting from the previous slide um so we
00:21:39
might have a a a a a tentative uh as a linear park
00:21:45
um the if what you part maybe maybe with a bass
00:21:48
lane for the basses as commuter lines between cities
00:21:53
uh for bicyclist electric bicycles and of course more recreation
00:21:58
and maybe news spine for help along this seventy kilometre
00:22:02
stretch all we could have a a um
00:22:07
it can now transforming the big infrastructure of the seventy kilometres along highway step
00:22:12
by step into what away kind of water transportation uh but also
00:22:17
for sports and for a help so we are hoping uh to have
00:22:24
a new played i mentioned this before as it comes down
00:22:28
a new plate could be installed in a couple of decades saying what is a written here
00:22:34
and uh but facing this um let me summarise the main points of the key points
00:22:41
so first of all we say as a result of the dust with as region today we can see
00:22:46
the das function let the the big infrastructure the widespread
00:22:51
fragmentation specially spatially and socially we can see
00:22:57
let 'em the collaboration as a principle of working acting and deciding
00:23:03
over top down is um is dominating the bottom up
00:23:08
the second step against this background of climate change climate adaptation the
00:23:13
knowledge of the sustainable development goals and you are agenda uh
00:23:19
we need to act carefully developing existing cities uh townsend
00:23:24
region we have to reduce ear to when
00:23:26
all these pollutants improving problem how of adapting to climate change and keeping up well being
00:23:33
and identity and raising the quality of life instead
00:23:36
of following the big infrastructure systems and trying
00:23:40
to work out to change the little pieces and still having the big infrastructure we
00:23:45
prefer to place the decision making process uh a process on a coordinated small scale system
00:23:52
on neighbourhood level um foster collaboration have put
00:23:56
forward a active mobility short range mobility
