The PLENUM regions
Facts and figures about the PLENUM-regions
All RegioMarket activities will be implemented in four of the five PLENUM-regions that belong to the Alpine Space. PLENUM project regions are characterized by particularly valuable and representative landscapes of Baden-Wuerttemberg like orchards or juniper heathlands. Because of their variety these regions receive funds for activities that contribute to the conservation the typical landscapes and to the increase of the added value in the region. At the moment PLENUM is implemented in the five regions Western Lake Constance, Allgaeu-Oberschaben, Reutlingen, Kaiserstuhl and Heckengaeu. All PLENUM regions cover about 13% of the surface of Baden-Wuerttemberg.
The region covers almost the complete rural district of Ravensburg and is characterized by the upper-swabian hill and moor landscape, by grassland and pastures and the cultivation of forage plants. Focus of the PLENUM work is e.g. the conservation of the humid grassland, of the poor grassland and pastures, of the moor and standing water body.
