Cross-cutting theme 1: Landscape and Democracy
LNI coordinator: Anna Szilágyi-Nagy
with Ass. Prof. Deni Ruggeri, Ph.D., Arati Uttur
The landscape belongs to everyone. We should all have equal access to it and a voice in how it is used, valued and maintained. Planners and designers are therefore required to understand better which narrations, power structures and conflicts are hidden in an urban landscape. Conflicting interests exist in any landscape. But they also generate dialogue and can lead to better alternatives, if a community-based communication process is designed well and without predefined solutions.
The participants of this workshop will join the forum with a shared idea of how to look at the landscape from a landscape democracy perspective and collaborate closely with the local NGOs, stakeholders and citizens.
