"Regional Landscaping" Type: Research Project Topic:

How can the spatial planning contribute to an active landscape policy within the meaning of the European Landscape Convention? This was the central question studied by the "Regional Landscaping" field of research. The "Regional Landscaping" demonstration project served to sound out control instruments and mechanisms addressing the landscape transformation in five model regions, and to trial innovative approaches. In addition, one associated partner region delved into specific cross-border issues of regional landscape design in the context of landscape-related projects, searching for transferable solutions and recommendations for regional landscaping activities on various spatial planning levels. All the demonstration projects have been successfully concluded now, yielding interesting results for diverse regional landscaping approaches. These were the subject matter of the results meeting "Designing Regional Landscapes. A Regional Planning Task".
