In particular, students will be able to analyse, integrate and interpret data and knowledge regarding both technical and humanistic aspects of landscapes; apply principles of sustainability in environmental, economic and socio-cultural terms in accordance with the 2030 Agenda’s Sustainable Development Goals; develop projects for the management and promotion of landscapes; use methodologies and tools to stimulate awareness and participation and create effective communication about landscape issues.
In line with the most advanced international perspectives in landscape studies, this course follows the recommendations of the Declaration of Higher Education on Landscape.
