Emscher Conversion intergenerational project

The conversion of the Emscher system is a task of unusual dimensions – both technically and financially.

From kick-off to completion, a number of decades will have passed. By then, however, the face of an entire region will have changed, not just through renaturalised waterways with high leisure value, but through a wide variety of projects in the adjacent areas that are initiated by the Emscher Conversion.

One thing is very helpful in tackling this task: we are not alone, but are supported by many partners. From the European Community to the municipal administrations in the neighbourhood, we have cooperation partners on all levels, providing financial support or dovetailing their projects with our conversion measures.
