Objectives, contents and instructions

Objectives of the communications. Participants

In order to encourage technical and citizen participation we are launching a call to society to contribute to sustainable urban development and environmental education in the face of global change, and especially to the study of landscape at urban and metropolitan scale, by means of participatory communications of individual citizens and groups.

Contents of the communications. Characteristics and objectives

In addition to its contribution to landscape culture and development as an element in spatial planning and as cultural, economic and social good, the International Congress focuses on studying cities with water as a key element, making emphasis on social participation.

The content of the Communications for the International Congress shall focus on studies, analysis and proposals of landscapes in any European city where water has played an important role in its genesis or still plays it in present time.

The TEyCI will display experiences of international, national, regional and local policies connected to the presence of water in landscapes, and to the protection and management of water resources with the following objectives:

  • Recognising landscapes in law as an essential component of people’s surroundings, an expression of the diversity of their shared cultural and natural heritage, and a foundation of their identity.
  • Establishing and implementing landscape policies aimed at landscape protection, management and planning through the adoption of the specific measures (set out in the Convention)
  • Establishing procedures for the participation of the general public, local and regional authorities, and other stakeholders with an interest in the definition and implementation of the landscape policies.
  • Integrating landscape into local, regional, national and international spatial and urban planning policies: cultural, environmental, agricultural, social and economic policies, as well as into any other policies with possible direct or indirect impact on landscape, and in this case, with a specific focus on policies for the management of water resources and the presence of water in the landscape.

The conclusions of the Meeting will be presented at the Meeting of the Steering Committee for Culture, Heritage and Landscape (CDCPP), and at the next Council of Europe Conference on the implementation of the European Landscape Convention.
