- Abstract in English : Voitsberg is a shrinking region, a trend driven by the decreasing number of inhabitants as a consequence of the break-down of the former coal mining and glass industry. There is, however, still considerable land consumption taking place. Activities to mitigate these trends include land use analysis, brownfield mapping and awareness raising. As of September 2012 a newly founded land management agency is in charge of directing sustainable land use for the entire pilot region.
The key objectives of the agency are to conserve natural and soil resources, promote brownfield recycling, monitor land take, organise awareness raising workshops and events for all relevant stakeholder groups and develop new innovative reuse projects.
