The vision for the transformation of the post-mining landscape was created collaboratively by Moravian-Silesian Investment and Development (MSID) working with more than 30 renowned experts in various fields. It represents the outcome of several months’ work, including numerous field surveys, and it comprises a complete, integrated set of analyses and proposals which will ensure the successful future transformation of this unique area.
For more than 6 months, over 30 renowned experts analyzed the entire territory of the post-mining landscape from the perspective of three pillars of sustainable development.
The result is a set of 19 detailed, high-quality analyses accentuating the positive values and trends in the area which can form a basis for the future development of the post-mining landscape, taking full advantage of all the opportunities it offers.
We have created a complete set of proposals for the newly transformed post-mining landscape. We emphasize new development nodes, accessibility for pedestrians and cyclists, excellent road infrastructure, and the use of railway lines. The proposals also define key areas of natural and societal values.
We have defined the areas that are of key importance for the successful transformation of the post-mining landscape and are necessary to kick-start new activities. They include the integration of the landscape with paths, roads and rail lines, as well as the use of green-blue corridors, coordinated approaches to former mine sites and brownfields, and the integrated development of node points. We also place strong emphasis on innovative projects and marketing support for all activities.
The project manual is an essential practical supplement to the proposal diagrams and the concept as a whole. It gives detailed examples of similar projects implemented in the Czech Republic and abroad. Its key goal is to outline the potential forms of the new proposed landscape functions. It covers a total 41 topics divided into 7 basic areas.
