UK Landscape Conference 2010

Organiser: European Landscape Convention
Location: Liverpool
Phone: 01453 872731

What is the future for landscape and planning in a rapidly changing political and economic arena? This three-day event will be the first ever conference on the European Landscape Convention to be held in the UK and could not have come at a more relevant time.

The Conference, will showcase and celebrate recent landscape thinking, building on the Convention's call to protect, manage and enhance landscapes everywhere: in town, country or coast and help you in your work to influence change between people and place.

The event, jointly hosted by Defra, the Welsh Assembly Government, the Scottish Government and the Department of the Environment Northern Ireland, and supported by Natural England, English Heritage, Scottish Natural Heritage, and Historic Scotland will be of interest to those with responsibility or interest in the protection, management and enhancement of all landscapes. Contributors to the programme will include landscape practitioners and academics from the UK and beyond and will be heavily case study led.

The aim of the event is to demonstrate the UK's engagement with the principles of the European Landscape Convention, celebrate our landscape achievements to-date and identify challenges ahead. Participants should leave feeling inspired, and with new contacts in their address book, from a wide range of disciplines including planning, conservation, leisure, tourism and economic development, and from both public and non-governmental organisations; private companies and professional bodies.

The winner of the UK Landscape Award 2010 will be announced at the first evening of the Conference. View all the entrants:
