am 27. November 2019 findet der nächste Workshop für regionale Akteure zum Thema „Entwicklung und Vernetzung von Grünräumen in der Dübener Heide: Gemeinsame Herausforderungen und Planung von Aktionen und Strategien“ in Bad Düben statt, zu dem wir Sie an dieser Stelle herzlich einladen.

Anknüpfend an den Workshop in Eilenburg im Mai 2019, bei dem wir den Bedarf, die Stärken und Gefährdungen Grüner Infrastruktur in der Dübener Heide ermittelt haben, möchten wir Ihnen nun die Ergebnisse präsentieren. Ebenso möchten wir über die Zwischenergebnisse des Projektes MaGICLandscapes bezüglich der Funktions- und Konnektivitätsanalyse Grüner Infrastruktur informieren. Wir werden einerseits zeigen, wo sich bereits jetzt sehr wertvolle Grünräume befinden und welch vielfältigen Nutzen sie für uns Menschen haben. Andererseits werden wir Gebiete in der Dübener Heide vorstellen, wo ein besonderer Bedarf an Grün besteht, um noch mehr von den Leistungen der Natur zu profitieren. Für ausgewählte Gebiete wollen wir gemeinsam mit Ihnen Aktionen und Strategien für den Schutz, die Aufwertung oder Neuanlage von Grünräumen planen. Wir wollen schauen wie die Werte und die Vorteile von Grüner Infrastruktur besser wahrgenommen und besser kommuniziert werden können.

The AMICE learning and demonstration networkis the circular training event of the AMiCE (Advanced Manufacturingin Central Europe) project,funded by the Interreg CENTRAL EUROPE program.The AMiCE project tacklesthree major challenges faced by SMEs when adopting advanced manufacturing technologies: access to knowledge, promotion of investments,competitiveness of these projects.

Advanced manufacturing technologies are a key driver of competitiveness in many industries, creating opportunities for applying circular design strategies and contributingto keeping skills and jobs in central Europe. Additive manufacturingcan supportcircular design strategies by creating opportunities to extend a product's lifespan, forinstance by enabling repair or upgrades, even ifproducts were not originally designed forthis.

The training eventaims at consolidating the network and align its development to the future challenges foreseen for circular economy. It will bring together the main actors of the network and ensure the high-quality operation of their network. The event also includes presentations from relevant innovations in this field, considered as an enabler to achieve the 2030 Sustainable Development Agendathrough eco-design and new business models. Recognizedexperts and decision-makers will participate in the event.

During the event, different sessionswill allow to identify new challenges and opportunitiesin order to be able to tackle them within the learning and demonstration network. This includes circularsuccesses storiesin areas such as circular economy strategies, industrial symbiosis, advance manufacturing, ecodesign, etc.givingparticipants the opportunity to grow their network of circular partners.

The AMICE training event, organizedin Genova, Italy, isscheduled with the5thEdition Genova Smart Weekevent, when Genoa becomes the top showcase of the Smart Cities field,thus a perfect chance to visit the city.
