The speaker Prof. Ulrike Böhm had invited to the meeting in Berlin at the federal office on October 8, 2018.

It is particularly pleasing that in future the regional groups of Lower Saxony Bremen, with Christoph Schonhoff, and Saxony, with Jens Rossa, will also be actively represented in the working group.

At the last meeting, the care and maintenance of open spaces was dealt with intensively. The AK has planned to incorporate the findings into a focus on "Good maintenance" in the association's newspaper. The aim is to allow interested bdla members to participate in the results of the committee's work. Since the contents of the association newspaper will also be used online to a greater extent in the future, this will not only create building blocks for member service, but also desirable effects for professional public relations work.

The foreseeable revision of the Leipzig Charter was another item on the agenda. It was agreed that, in the course of a new edition, statements on climate adaptation, health and health promotion, and integrated sustainable transport concepts, among other things, should be added. In this context, an ongoing study from the research programme "Experimental Housing and Urban Development" is interesting; the BBSR has commissioned the study "Possibilities and Strategies of the German EU Presidency 2020" with regard to the Leipzig Charter. The AK will examine how landscape architects can contribute.

The topic of open space - health - sport was also discussed. Friedhelm Terfrüchte had contacts to the advisory board "Environment and Sport" of the BMUB. In this context, the Prevention Act and its potential for health-promoting urban development and for the fields of activity of landscape architects were also discussed. However, initial publications do not suggest any great direct potentials for the fields of activity in the narrow sense. Further empirical results on the use of financial resources in the setting of municipalities remain to be seen.
