Rural territories participating in the project, inspired by European Landscape Convention, seek to valorise and transform its common Mediterranean landscape not only into a mark of identity but also into a driving force for territorial development of European rural areas. The partners will develop a common methodology and pilot actions in landscape planning allowing to set up an innovative and participative model of governance and sustainable territorial development based on landscape Achievements: State of the art of project implementation since the project startModeland's objective is the creation of landscape planning models and tools to foster the development of Mediterranean rural territories and support cooperation among them. To do so, the first step was the development of territorial diagnosis through perception surveys conducted among citizens and technical studies that defined the features of the landscape for each territory. The obtained results were later processed to elaborate territorial conclusion reports and to develop comparative analysis where several challenges common to all territories were identified. Such findings are the base of the landscape tools that are presently being implemented under the Modeland project: Action Plans, implementing territorial improvement actions, Landscape Charts, securing the involvement of the general public and the stakeholders, Observatories, acting as collaborative bodies for the Actions Plans, and Groups of Volunteers, consolidating civic participation in the preservation of the landscape.Latest project activities and outputsDuring the 7th reporting period, main technical activity has been focused on completing activities of Component 3, advancing activities of Component 4 and launching activities of Component 5.
