- Abstract in English : The paper explains some of the approaches to working with the local
communities undertaken by students and staff at Leeds Metropolitan
University. A brief introduction to landscape education at Leeds is followed
by a review of the Landscape Design and Community Programme. This
explains the range of projects undertaken and their place within the
curriculum. The paper focuses on discussion of the Earth Centre, a major
new environmental initiative in South Yorkshire with which the University
is currently involved. The relationship of this project to landscape education
and its significance within the local community is explored.
