Discussion: UNESCO Biosphere Reserve Bliesgau
About the future vision of a Saarland model region and the symbolic power of nature
In 2009, UNESCO recognized large parts of the Bliesgau as Biosphere Reserve Bliesgau. The Saarbrücken region is also integrated into the model region with the area of the municipality of Kleinblittersdorf. But what does the concept of a UNESCO biosphere reserve mean in practice? How can it succeed that the contents and concrete utopias of the biosphere reserve Bliesgau arrive in the middle of society and become the driving force of exemplary sustainable lifestyles of the people living and farming here?
During the lecture, the specifics of the Bliesgau Biosphere Reserve and its fields of action will be highlighted and discussed from the perspective of ethical and cultural aspects. The symbolic power of nature and the wisdom inherent in it will be discussed. In turning to nature and observing it closely, man recognizes what he truly is. A child of the earth, who is well advised to fathom the wisdom of nature. Humans can gain access to these wisdoms and laws of nature and thereby participate more actively in a reharmonization process of their own personality, but also towards creation. People have been on the trail of this phenomenon since time immemorial: The doctrine of the "Golden Ratio", which can have an enormous effect as an impulse generator for thinking, researching and designing.
Ultimately, the citizen-oriented research mandate is: How can it be possible for people to get involved and understand themselves with their own personal thrust as part of the solution to the upcoming change?
