The Lotseninsel is a small peninsula situated in the transition area of the Baltic Sea and the Schlei in Northern Germany. The mouth of the Schlei is an ecological important area and is thus protected under several conservation laws. The position of the Lotseninsel amid and surrounded by this ecological important area, makes it an important place. However, since it is the only part of the mouth of the Schlei which is not protected by law, it is also the only area which can legally be entered and used. This makes the Lotseninsel special and many stakeholders are thus interested in this small area. This results in an excessive demand and pressure on the resources and facilities of the Lotseninsel itself and the surrounding nature. In order to change this and to prevent degradation it is necessary to integrate and balance the various interests. The Lighthouse Foundation, the owner of the Lotseninsel, made it thus to their aim to develop a concept of usage, which integrates and balances all the different interests and is well-accepted by the stakeholders, in order to manage the Lotseninsel in a sustainable way. However, the problem in this regard is the fact that more insight is needed to enhance the process to come to such a concept. This thesis wants to give assistance in that regard. Therefore, an analysis of ‘images of nature’ is conducted, which studies the points of view of stakeholders and the underlying factors that govern interests. The resulting images are compared and the obtained similarities and differences are used to detect compliances and conflicts with principles of sustainable development. Together, this knowledge is used to develop an advice which eventually helps to enhance the process to come to a concept of usage.
