What has science contributed to the implementation of the European Landscape Convention? And what are the topics for the future of European landscape? The 10th anniversary of the Florence Convention is occasion to discuss in depth the merits of landscape science at the forefront of integrated research in a rapidly changing spatial environment. Interdisciplinary contributions explicitly referring to the principles of the Landscape Convention are especially welcomed.
Inspiring academic debate
Aim of the conference is to discuss cutting-edge research results at the crossroads of sciences and humanities, design and empiricism. Papers will be prepared in advance, and selected as a basis for the debate in the conference. The results of the debate will be presented to the political audience present for the celebration of the 10th Anniversary of the ELC on 20 October. All papers and posters received timely will be published in Conference Proceedings, available at the Conference itself.
After the conference the papers will be updated and as much as possible published in scientific journals.
Conference language is English.
The conference is a joint initiative of UNISCAPE and LANDSCAPE EUROPE.
It is a next step in the EUROSCAPE2020 process launched by LANDSCAPE EUROPE in 2008. It is at the same time the first major scientific event promoted by UNISCAPE. Florence is chosen as venue because it hosts the celebrations of the ELC; it is also the seat of UNISCAPE.
