Change through renewable energies. Wind power, land use, and social acceptance in Schlalach (Brandenburg)

Exhibition project in the context of the Deutschland-Themenklasse „Sustainablity & Global Justice“

Students bring new energy

An exhibition on 16 wind turbines in a small village of Brandenburg 

24 April - 3 May 2014, HU's main building, Lichthof

What is it like to live in a small village in Brandenburg in which 16 wind turbines have been erected? Some students investigated the impact of wind power on land use and social constellations using the example of Schlalach, a small village in Brandenburg with 16 wind turbines. Within their exhibition "Change through renewable energies. Wind power, land use, and social acceptance in Schlalach (Brandenburg)", the young researchers showed how the situation in Brandenburg has developed, why the change of energy went so smoothly, including the acceptance and active involvement by Schlalach´s citizen.

Their project was part of the Deutschland-Themenklasse „Sustainablity & Global Justice“ in 2013/2014. For the first time, students from the Bachelor and Master Programs of the Departments of European Ethnology, Philosophy, Geography and Agricultural Economics were funded by Stiftung Humboldt-Universität to perform joint small research projects on a new era in energy.

The exhibition was opened during the final presentation of all three project groups on 24 April 2014.
