About the Course

The objective of the course is to give in-depth knowledge and skills in the management of cultural landscapes within a broadly defined conservation perspective, linked to strategies for regional and local development within the framework of land-use planning. Important parts of the course are resource inventories and landscape documentation to be used as tools for planning of infrastructure development and sustainable use of cultural and natural resources. Students will learn to use digital resources (GIS, Remote Sensing, database handling, etc.) in connection with environmental protection and remediation, planning and resource assessments.

A specific focus is directed towards the ongoing work within the framework of the European Landscape Convention and the emergence of landscape observatories.

Education will be delivered as lectures, seminars and field work.
