This includes raising the awareness of cultural landscapes by transnational surveys (“digital land register“) and an open-access web portal, “Landscape Wikipedia”, to integrate landscapes into regional development by exemplary pilot projects in the fields of agriculture, tourism, regional marketing, and renewable energies. Moreover, it aims at elaborating integrated strategies for the protection and development of cultural landscapes at regional, national and CADSES level. The project primarily intends to establish a transnational network to help to enact the European Landscape Convention in the CADSES area.
