Overview

The guideline of sustainable development and its realisation is one of the greatest challenges of the 21st century. In order to follow sustainable development goals like the protection of biodiversity, climate change mitigation and adaption, reduction of land consumption or the protection of finite resources, governance strategies like monitoring or legal restrictions have to be complemented by concrete practical projects. These projects illustrate what the guideline of sustainable development in detail means in each field of action, and how local actors can disseminate and promote it by putting it into practice. Many success stories document that pilot projects are a common mean for exploring new fields of action for sustainable development actors. However, the transfer to other situations and municipalities and the dissemination of the idea behind the project still faces many challenges and problems.

Thus, the project "From pilot project to common practice – Incentives for sustainable development actors" aims to analyse the experiences of sustainable development actors with adoption of pilot projects in order to understand, which framework conditions and instruments are decisive success factors. The results will be published in a practical guide on the the transfer of pilot projects in the common practice of local authorities and initiatives. This leaflet will be published in the of the third "Network21congress" in Cologne.

The IZT realises this project in cooperation with the Landesarbeitsgemeinschaft Agenda21 North Rhine-Westfalia and is funded by Federal Environment Agency within the "Environmental Research Plan 2009) of the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety.
