LE:NOTRE Landscape Forum 2017 will take place from May 16 until 20 in München-Freising. Theme of this forum is “Inclusive Landscapes”.
“Inclusive Landscapes” are accessible for everyone, offering space for collaborative, socially inclusive processes, participation and interaction for all people, thus contributing to equity and environmental justice.
As a planning and design concept “Inclusive Landscapes” incorporates the knowledge and needs of everyone, balances interests of different stakeholders, and in particular considers those groups that have difficulties in accessing information and articulating their interests. The concept of “Inclusive Landscapes” can be applied to any kind of landscape – such as urban, rural, tourism, or heritage landscapes.
This landscape forum will exemplify the concept of “Inclusive Landscapes” in the region of Munich North with new approaches. These approaches will be transferable to other metropolitan areas across Europe.
Objectives of the Landscape Forum
What makes the LE:NOTRE Landscape Forum different from other European landscape events is the focus on dialogue, debate and discourse. It provides a unique opportunity to interact creatively with colleagues from a range of landscape disciplines in informal workshop and field visit settings. The aim is to create stimulating environment to promote the generation of both new teaching ideas and projects, for research and for collaboration between theory and practice. A joint publication will result from the meeting, to which all participants will contribute. To date, the forum has been organized three times: Antalya (2012), Rome (2013), Sarajevo (2014).
The Forunm is hosted by the Department of Landscape Architecture of Hochschule Weihenstephan Triesdorf and the Chair for Strategic Planning and Management of Technische Universität München.
