    ECLAS 2017 Conference:
    Creation / Reaction

    Landscapes are in every way embedded in creative processes, from design to their making, from planning to their management, engaging different and often disparate community expectations. Of course the endlessly creative natural processes, from geology, to plants, to ecology and so on provide the prime matter with which the landscape professions are concerned. | Learn more...

    III CHAM International Conference,

    Coastal seas and open oceans have always been a realm for epic adventures, for misfortunes and new discoveries, a place for the construction of stories and legends, and for the creation of myths and imaginary geographies. Home of different ecosystems and of plentiful resources, in the offshore waters of the world oceans and in the nearby shores of all continents, sources of food were found and exploited, new industries, cities and ports were established and developed, different ways of communication and transfer of people, products and knowledge were created and explored. | Learn more...

    Landscape future

    During this conference, we will explore the topic of future landscapes and its potentials and challenges. Landscapes provide a large number of functions, services and benefits to society. They may be seen as a positive development factor as well as an area with conflicting interests and needs for enhancement. At the same time, landscapes are increasingly characterised by competing demands such as climate change mitigation, biodiversity, conservation, agriculture, recreation, etc., which often implies tradeoffs and hard decisions have to be made in order to balance or prioritize the different demands. | Learn more...

    Making Europe Work

    Our long-term project "Making Europe work" brings together young motivated Europeans from the Balkans, France and Germany and focuses on ways to enhance the civil society in Eastern Europe.

What is the role of the young generation and what possibilities exist to become active in those fields? The Franco-German motor and the Western Balkans, a European region of crisis and opportunity, are of central importance in this context. | Learn more...

    IFLA Europe General Assembly 2017

    Bucharest is a city often described as an “in-between orient and occident”. And so it might be considered, as it is a European city with an un-usual structure for both space and building traditions. The Bucharest landscape is dominated by collage, by strange juxtapositions of striking modernity, bucolic tradition (king of rural bourgeois space), concrete totalitarian cuts, sub-urban half improvised neighbourhoods and Parisian ersatz. Its tissue is an amazing outcome of a, already traditional, “cut-and-run” urban politic. It is a hard-to-see city, hidden for the inpatient tourist’s eye and who needs tender and long strolling to reveal its soul. | Learn more...
