Tempelhofer Feld

Development & participation

The development of the Tempelhofer Feld was and still is primarily in the hands of the Berlin population: After the citizens of Berlin voted in a referendum for an extensive preservation of the former condition, the law for the preservation of the Tempelhofer Feld (ThFG) came into force in June 2014. As a result, the development and maintenance plan (EPP) for Tempelhofer Feld was drawn up in a participatory process until May 2016. With the EPP, a permanent participation model for the Tempelhofer Feld was anchored for the implementation of the EPP. The EPP relies on the qualities of open-source models with joint process development and topic definition. Here, the diverse knowledge and the wealth of perspectives of the committed citizens, administration and politics are bundled and continue in a fruitful and future-oriented cooperation. The pillars of the participation model are the field coordination, thematic workshops and field forums, all held in public and supported by an office. The field coordination consists of elected representatives of civil society, the Senate Department for the Environment, Transport and Climate Protection and Grün Berlin.

Another part of the development and maintenance of the Tempelhofer Feld are the civic projects. There is a separate procedure for this, through which new projects can be submitted. The law for the preservation of the Tempelhofer Feld provides the scope for project uses on the Tempelhofer Feld.
