New version of the quality criteria for the evaluation of the German National Parks


In the next two years, the German national parks will be evaluated again after 2009-2012. Among other things, the legal, financial and personnel framework conditions of the national park work will be considered, as well as the size and undisturbed nature of the areas or educational and nature experience offers. In preparation for this, the existing set of quality criteria and standards was intensively revised in order to eliminate some weaknesses that came to light during the first evaluation. This "Version 2.0" has now been published and is also available as a free download in German and English, including all indicators and questions. Prof. Heiland supported the project as an external adviser. The project was funded by the Federal Agency for Nature Conservation (BfN) with funds from the Federal Ministry for the Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU).

Myths of the ongoing environmental and climate debates


The lecture of Prof. Heiland in the context of the lecture series 'Climate Protection' of the TU Berlin is available at Youtube (in german language only).

In the current discussion about climate protection and a socio-ecological transformation, one repeatedly encounters typical arguments put forward by different sides. Since they are often used unquestioned, claim to be true and seem to have a strong fascination, they can be called myths. The lecture questions some of these myths, which revolve around topics such as renewable energies, technology, nature conservation, lifestyles, freedom, prosperity, renunciation and individual or social responsibility.
