The future rural village

Gut Land Leben

An action perspective has been developed for the redevelopment of a number of agricultural centres around the village of Urleben (Thuringia, Germany). It concerns an equal transformation of the original farming communities to a more differentiated environment, where original residents, young families from the city as well as special target groups form new collectives. The basis for organization, management and programming is formed by the so-called “Village Corporation”, in which all residents have a share. Work is being done on the creation of a circular system in which services and products are exchanged at a local level, and landscape management and energy management are taken care of.
