April is World Landscape Architecture Month and to celebrate the occasion, the Joint Postgraduate Program of Studies in Landscape Architecture AUTh organized a Symposium regarding the European Landscape Convention, Council of Europe and the liabilities derived from this, as to works and projects.
In this celebration of landscape, we invited, to collaborate all relevant members of academia, ministries, authorities, societies and organizations and the public. The European Landscape Convention is the first legal document dedicated entirely to the ‘landscape’ and aims at protecting, managing, planning and designing the landscape for the improvement of the quality of life and wellbeing of people. Liabilities in regards to projects which concern the human rights, democracy and sustainable development, according to the Convention, were discussed. Speakers were called to focus on the level of ‘compatibility’ of Greek studies, works and projects to the aims and goals set by the ratification of the European Landscape Convention.
The thematic categories were the following:
_ Implementation of the European Landscape Convention
_ Protection, Management, Planning and Design of the Landscape
_Studies, works and projects
_ Landscape Architecture and the Εnvironment
