We are looking forward to welcoming you to the next i2connect cross-visit taking place in Germany and Austria from the 24th to the 26th of April.

Aims and contents of the practical projects

1st project: Practical project in Ruhstorf “FInAL: Promotion of insects in agricultural landscapes”.

Intensive agriculture is considered one of the main causes for the current decline of insect diversity and biomass in Germany. The FInAL project will therefore establish landscape laboratories in representative agricultural landscapes in Germany as part of the “Action Program Insect Conservation”, in which innovative measures to promote insects through integrated cultivation of renewable resources in a landscape context will be developed, demonstrated and evaluated.

2nd project: lebensraum:natur association

Objectives: To raise awareness and sensitize the entire population to the topic of biodiversity and to provide extensive information.

To organize concrete projects on the topic of biodiversity and to accompany their conservation and maintenance.
