This event, jointly hosted by Defra, the Welsh Assembly Government, the Scottish Government and the Department of the Environment Northern Ireland will be held, in Liverpool, from 8 to 10 November 2010. It will celebrate the UK’s engagement with the principles of the European Landscape Convention (ELC) and will be a major event in the UK Landscape calendar. Speakers, contributors and case studies will represent UK, European and International experience. The event will include the announcement of the winner of the first UK Landscape Awards.
For the full programme and online registration visit http://www.uklandscapeconference.org. Please note there has already been a high level of interest in this conference it will probably sell out. Early registration is therefore recommended. There is a charge, but cost have been kept to a level which organisers feel represents fantastic value for money.
The organisers hope that delegates will be drawn not only from the landscape professions, but will include anyone with an involvement in shaping our urban, rural or coastal spaces across the whole of the UK - England, Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales….. and beyond. They might include custodians, conservation organisations, and planners as well as urban designers, landscape architects and academics.
