'Land: Quality of Life' Workshops

workshopThe congress “Land: Quality of Life”, to be held this November (5th – 8th), will include plenary sessions and subject specific workshops, as well as additional activities, networking opportunities and exhibitions.

A draft of the programme of events is available here on the LandLife Congress website.

More detailed information on the workshops will be available on our Congress website soon!

The workshops will take place on 6th November and will focus on six thematic areas:

  • Land stewardship & European sectoral policies;

European environmental & agricultural policies share similar objectives with Land Stewardship, they compliment one another. This thematic area considers how the link between these policies and land stewardship can be strengthened and how the two could be used side-by-side to improve the future of the environment trans-nationally in Europe.

  • Technical implementation of Land Stewardship;

This block analyses the structure of land stewardship and its application as well as the technical and legal mechanisms developed in different countries to apply this conservation tool. The relevance and application of stewardship practices in other areas such as marine or freshwater environments will also be addressed in this thematic area.

  • Networking & the involvement of stakeholders and citizens in Land Stewardship;

Land stewardship aims to involve landowners and land users in the conservation of nature and landscapes with support from a range of civil organisations. Workshops on this thematic area will focus on co-responsibility of stakeholders and citizens to manage and protect land and natural resources and how their involvement in land stewardship initiatives can be strengthened.

  • Funding Land Stewardship;

Many options are available for financing land stewardship. Workshops under this thematic block will explore traditional publicand private funds andinnovative and alternative approaches for financing land stewardship initiatives.

  • Communicating Land Stewardship;

The success of land stewardship initiatives depends upon communication. Not only landowners, but also the general public, need to be aware of the solutions land stewardship could provide to local communities and societies. This thematic area is aimed specifically at lorganisations and stakeholders interested in communicating land stewardship. A wide range of communication initiatives and strategies will be presented.

  • Enhancing innovation in Land Stewardship.

This thematic block aims to incorporate innovative approaches and topics related to land stewardship, as well as new approaches to boost land stewardship awareness and participation.

The workshops are being organised by the LandLife partners and have been defined to promote interactive discussions, generate ideas and encourage the exchange of experiences, best practices and knowledge between participants.
