The Arge Klimamoor videocast
What are the next operative steps in the Arge-Klimamoor project? After more than 140 talks with farms and 10 large information events in 2022, the staff of Arge Klimamoor, with the consent of the participating land users and owners, need to investigate how much peat is still present under their land in the peatlands and how and where water flows when it is dammed. The videocasts that are created along these processes are intended to show how these investigations are implemented. In the first videocast, the introduction also includes basic information so that everyone involved is able to familiarise themselves with the project in an easily accessible way. The vidocasts are presented by Frank Schroeder, who has already produced extensive programmes on the subject of “peatlands” for rbb radio.
