The LE:NOTRE Institute has been established under the auspices of ECLAS, the European Council of Landscape Architecture Schools, as an umbrella organisation for interdisciplinary collaboration between education, research and innovative practice in the landscape field.
The goal of the LE:NOTRE Institute is to develop and strengthen the links between landscape education, research and innovative practice, in the public, private and not for profit sectors.
Whereas LE:NOTRE started in 2002 as a European landscape architecture network, it gradually evolved to embrace other landscape disciplines as well as students and landscape practitioners from across the world.
It aims to achieve this by furthering and facilitating communication, collaboration and cross-fertilisation of ideas on an interdisciplinary and cross-sectoral basis, in order to promote the wider and deeper understanding of the cultural, environmental, social and economic role of the landscape for the benefit and well-being of society as a whole.
Forum participants are invited to become members of the LE:NOTRE Institute.
