Workshop on Cultural Landscapes

13th May 2019, Schloss Bad Homburg v.d. Höhe

Cultural landscapes:  development, appreciation and use of values

Workshop of the project AWARDING HERITAGE in the program SHARING HERITAGE

Cultural landscapes are creating an identity and reflect our history on the local, regional and European level. At the same time, they are subject to constant change, much more than most other cultural heritage. For environmental, urban and regional planning, for economic and tourism development, cultural landscapes are at the same time places and resources of today’s actions – often with conflicting interests.

With innovative management structures and visions, it is possible to develop and to implement consensus-ready concepts that make the sustainable development of a cultural landscape possible. This includes creating offers that invite people to learn more about the peculiarities of a cultural landscape and to enjoy them with all senses.
