On 23.11.23, Fabian Hölzlberger PhD student from the ZuWaKo team was able to attend a meeting of the Lusatia Round Table, a cross-state municipal alliance to tackle the many challenges associated with structural change in Lusatia. Following a keynote speech by Mr. Carsten Schneider, Minister of State and Federal Government Commissioner for Eastern Germany, there were expert contributions and discussions on topics such as Lusatia as a European model region for structural development and the further development of Lusatia as a research location. The topic of water was also discussed with regard to the coal phase-out and structural change. After the presentations, there was time for smaller discussions and get-togethers over a buffet.
