Cultural landscape issues have been gaining an increasing interest in recent years on European and international context. In 1992, the World Heritage Convention became the first legal instrument to recognize and protect cultural landscape worldwide; and European Landscape Convention came into force in 2004 to promote landscape protection, management and planning, and to organize European cooperation on landscape issues. Recommendation by the Committee of Ministers of the Council of Europe on the Guiding Principles for Sustainable Spatial Development of the European Continent (Rec. 2002) aimed, among others, to protect Europeans’ quality of life and well-being taking into account landscape, cultural and natural values. More recently, International Federation of Landscape Architects set up a Cultural Landscape Committee to understand an appropriate evolution of cultural landscapes to develop such skills to assure their vibrant future. The aim of this programme is to undertake an intensive program of study to enhance the international capacity in landscape design with cultural landscapes. It is also aimed at responding to the need of better understanding of the value of European cultural landscapes that we inherited from the past and to provide the students with the necessary knowledge on how to integrate cultural landscapes into landscape designs for a better quality of life. The first round of the programme was held in Antalya, Turkey, in July 2011. The second round will be held in Brussels, Belgium, in July 2012. Partners of the project are Akdeniz University (TR), Erasmushogeschool Brussel (BE), HTW Dresden (DE) and Ankara University (TR). The programme is open to students and staff of the partner institutions.
