Angioletta Voghera, INU Community Landscape and biodiversity

The conference discusses the results of the implementation of the European Landscape Convention twenty years after its introduction in the European context. The recent landscape planning season and the ongoing experiments introduce new analysis and design tools, towards overcoming the only regulatory approach for the construction of more effective design actions.
The approved landscape plans and those in progress offer ideas for moving from the “paper landscape” to the concrete implementation of the landscape action in the territories. In this context, the Conference reflects in particular on some issues of landscape action: agriculture, forests, risk and reconstruction, nature and biodiversity, ecosystem services, the relationship between regional and local policies, methodological and design experiments.
