Launched by the Department of Spatial Planning of the Ministry of Energy and Spatial Planning, the urban-architectural and landscape consultation entitled Luxembourg in Transition – Spatial visions for the low-carbon and sustainable future of the Luxembourg functional region aims to gather strategic spatial planning proposals and produce “towards 2050” ecological transition scenarios for the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg and neighbouring border territories. It was inspired by other large-scale consultations that have been conducted, such as those for Greater Paris and Greater Geneva.
This international consultation is aimed at professionals, but also universities, technical institutes and research organisations with expertise in the fields of spatial planning, urban planning, landscape and architecture, supported by environmental disciplines as well as the humanities and social sciences.
Luxembourg in Transition is a process that encourages the formation of multidisciplinary teams from diverse backgrounds for a new transitional and resilient approach to spatial planning. Rather than a competition between teams, this is a call for bold ideas that will be developed in parallel, to accompany the actions of decision-makers in years to come and to strengthen the support of citizens for a collective project involving a profound transformation of their way of life through inspiring visions (“desirable futures”) and concrete ideas for actions, infrastructure and spatial planning.
