Welcome to our landscape portal

We promote inter- and transdisciplinary dialogue on landscape in order to foster the sustainable transmission of all kinds of landscapes.

Our contribution includes online lectures and the local dialogue on landscape is enhance by the yearly LE:NOTRE Landscape Forum, where local stakeholders, professionals, local authorities, academics and students of various disciplines join forces to addres a local landscape challenge.

We fully embrace the vision or the European Landscape Convention and  sustainable development according to the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals.

This involves Landscape Democracy, where landscapes are improved in an inclusive way, in collaboration and with co-creation of all.  We aim to bring a new way of thinking and acting into relevant university curricula in order to prepare the future generation of landscape architects, planners, architects and designers for their role as democratic leaders for sustainability. There is an urgent need for transformative competence at all levels of society since the challenges for our communities are growing across Europe.

Powerful driving forces such as the globalisation of work, climate change, digitalisation, demographic ageing, migration, individualization, biodiversity loss and unequal resource distribution are not resolvable within the framework of election periods and sector-specific policies. So we should unite all stakeholders in a collaborative effort for sustainability.

This dialogue is supported by the LE:NOTRE Institute (LNI) and the European Council of Landscape Architecture Schools (ECLAS).
