5–9 September 2016 in Innsbruck and Seefeld, Austria
Since the introduction of the European Landscape Convention in 2000 and the Faro Convention on the Value of Cultural Heritage to Society in 2005, the reciprocal relation of landscape and heritage is becoming clearer and better understood by scholars, policy makers and practitioners. Landscape and cultural heritage are mutually supportive and in conjunction they offer a way to realize the social and economic benefits of both. Landscape, as a pluralistic and inclusive concept, can provide a framework within which heritage can be differently understood.
to promote landscape as a global frame and a way of thinking (from local to universal, personal to collective, tangible and intangible – for all kinds of landscapes), one needs to develop good key messages to be used by different scientific disciplines from both natural and social sciences as well as by policy makers and practitioners. Since we believe in the power of case studies, this session aims to bring together good practices of bridging landscape and heritage.
Through the case studies we want to address the following questions: How can landscape be considered as a tool to develop the vision of the Faro Convention? How can we deliver integrated messages - new ways and perspectives - from landscape and culture heritage? How to raise awareness for the area-wide heritage dimension of landscape (going beyond the protected areas)?
