About the AG: Structure and working methods

In the Climate Working Group, landscape architects from offices throughout Bavaria, as well as representatives of authorities from many cities throughout Germany, A4F and, for example, Green City Munich discuss climate protection. There is a lively exchange of experiences on the new planning requirements in climate protection.

After a longer break due to coronavirus, the bdla Bayern Climate Working Group, which was founded in 2019, resumed its work in March 2021. The topic of climate protection is now being discussed and implemented everywhere. In the short to medium term, the working group will therefore focus primarily on current developments in climate protection and work out which next steps are expedient for discussions within and across the profession.

Due to the pandemic, the working group meetings will generally continue to take place online. The meetings are supplemented by guided tours of climate-relevant projects.
