Landscape Forum Bucharest 2015
From 21st to 25th of April 2015 Bucharest will host the Landscape Forum organized by the LE:NOTRE Institute Austria together with Romanian partners:Ion Mincu University for Architecture and Urbanism, University of Agronomical Sciences and Veterinary Medicine, ASOP Romanian Association of Landscape Architecture, APUR Professional Association of Romanian Urban Planners as hosts and Greentourism Ecological Association as knowledge partner.
The focal area of the forum is the chain of lakes along the river Colentina, which has huge potential for the sustainable development of Bucharest.
The Colentina landscape represents high relevance for the forum’s four focal themes:
– Urban growth and peri-urban sprawl: the urban periphery
– Sustainable tourism and recreation: visions for landscape regeneration
through tourism development
– Heritage and identities: permanence, patrimony, specificity and dynamics of
– Rural fringe and productive landscapes: multifunctional rural landscapes and the economic dimension
The four themes will be explored by workshops, excursions, keynote lectures and roundtable discussions during the four main forum days.
As knowledge partners, we will help in organizing the Pre-forum Promenade: Carpathian Spirit – Exploring Rural Romania, a journey to the Carpathian landscape with a focus on greentourism (19th -21th of April).
We contribute our expertise in order to bring the Forum participants to unique places in the Carpathian landscape and present approaches to green tourism in an extraordinary natural and cultural environment.
Objectives of the Landscape Forum
The LE:NOTRE Landscape Forum provided a unique opportunity to interact creatively with colleagues from a range of landscape disciplines in informal workshop and field visit settings. The aim was to create a 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 contributed.
