Berlin Brandenburg Airport brings new jobs, attractive destinations, and an economic upswing. However, air traffic also represents a burden for residents, especially those in the immediate vicinity of the airport. The airport is aware of its responsibility. The airport has already compensated for unavoidable impacts on nature with numerous measures in the airport surroundings. These stretch around the airport like a green ribbon. Almost lost estate parks have been restored and attractive new green spaces have been created, thereby providing recreational areas for residents in the vicinity of the airport and ecologically valuable habitats for wildlife.
Since 2005, the “International work camp” has taken place every year with the support of the airport company. Youths from different countries live together in Rangsdorf for three weeks and work in the Zülowniederung and at Lake Rangsdorf for nature conservation, landscape preservation, and the promotion of environmental education. Since the first camp, 130 youths from 29 countries have become involved. In addition to the commitment to the environment, the annual camp focuses on international understanding and tolerance in dealing with other cultures.
During the renovation of “Gutspark Dahlewitz”, particular attention was paid to cultural–historical and ecological aspects. The overgrown estate park was restored according to historical plans. The original relationship of the paths to each other was brought back to life over 1.8 km, the pond/ditch system was revitalised, four bridges were built according to historical models, and new meadow areas were created.
