Prof. Dr. Eckhard Jedicke

Geisenheim University of Applied Sciences, Institute for Landscape Planning and Nature Conservation

WERTvoll can create new values – in nature quality, quality of life and income for land users. I find the local cooperation of people in town and country ground-breaking – together more can be achieved!

Prof. Dr. Eckhard Jedicke (Dipl.-Geogr.) leads the Institute for Landscape Planning and Nature Conservation and is Professor for Landscape Development at the Geisenheim University of Applied Sciences where he is developing a nationwide competence centre for cultural landscape (KULT). He also publishes the journal “Naturschutz und Landschaftsplanung” (https://www.nul-online.de/).

Dr. Jedicke, and KULT, promotes the mutual transfer of knowledge between practice and science in the use and thus design of cultural landscapes. He is also concerned with a fair balance of interests between the interests of nature conservationists and land users, which can only be achieved through intensive dialogue. In the work of WERTvoll, he contributes his experience in questions of pasture concepts, production-integrated compensation, water body and floodplain renaturation, biotope networks, agricultural subsidies and ecosystem services.
