GLOBALIZATION AND THE RURAL LANDSCAPE. CHANGE PATTERNS AND NEW APPROACHES TO PLANNING - EXCELLENCE COURSE
The importance of urban-rural linkages and partnerships is stressed by a number of political agendas (OECD, UN NUA, EC, CoE). Inter-sectoral approaches are often invoked, but rarely implemented, due to several constrains. The course aims to investigate existing and possible relationships between rural policies and spatial plans, at regional and local level, in Europe, putting forward the European Agenda on these issues (including, urban and peri-urban agriculture). New concepts of “landscape management”, “landscape governance” and “landscape strategy making”, and their relations with strategic and collaborative planning, will also be explored.
