Shipping, fishing, tourism, nature conservation, renewable energies – our coastlines are used in many different ways. When it comes to planning and using the coastal area, however, cooperation between the various actors often fails – also because the different interests sometimes can lead to conflicts. The “Sea2Land” project, a successor to the project “Land-Sea-Act”, in which BEF Germany also participated in, deals with these different interests and stakeholders and aims to bring them together. For this purpose, we want to create a “navigator” (a guide to action on how coastal space can be used efficiently and sensibly) as a tool for authorities and governments and test it in pilot regions.

BEF Germany will work with the Island of Fehmarn as one of the project’s pilot regions. The municipality of Fehmarn with its approximately 13,000 inhabitants has declared the goal to become climate neutral by 2030. Fehmarn also wants to be energy self-sufficient with renewable energies and develop the tourism sector to be more climate friendly. In order to contribute to these plans, BEF Germany supports the development of renewable energies on Fehmarn Island. To achieve this goal, we will develop a plan how the future expansion of renewable energy sources on Fehmarn can look like. Doing so, wewill focus on the obstacles and hurdles, such as NIMBY (not in my backyard) behaviour and discuss concepts to overcome them, so that regional and regenerative energy supplies become more attractive.
