Inhalt: At a time of unprecedented environmental change, nature conservation policies and practices are key to the protection of natural values, vulnerable ecosystems and treasured landscapes. Yet, ways of doing nature conservation are also changing in response to wider societal shifts and an increasing recognition of the need to incorporate cultural values, local knowledge and traditional practices with conservation strategies. Critical perspectives within human geography and the social sciences have long viewed nature conservation as a ‘spatial practice’ whereby national parks and other forms of protected areas are created to set aside spaces for nature beyond the damaging influence of modern human society. More recently, researchers and practitioners seek to find ways to engage local communities and stakeholders in nature conservation, to find a balance between resource use and protection, within a wider context of sustainable development. In this seminar, current concepts and practices of nature conservation and their geographical implications will be critically discussed. Students, working in small groups, will carry out desk-based research on case studies of nature conservation in Germany and worldwide.

Inhalt: Europe’s marine environment is under increasing pressure from both traditional activities such as shipping, fisheries and oil and gas extraction as well as emerging activities such as offshore renewable energy production and aquaculture. At the same time, there is increased awareness of the need to protect and restore marine and coastal ecosystems. Marine spatial planning is the key policy instrument for managing competing claims on marine space and ensuring human activities stay within environmental limits. This interactive seminar will address the theory and practice of ecosystem-based marine spatial planning. Participating students will examine and critically assess current practices of marine spatial planning in European countries. Working in groups, they will prepare an integrated marine spatial plan for the transboundary Dogger Bank in the North Sea.
