Landscape democracy is an emergent aspect of our profession which bridges landscape architecture and human rights. This opens a forum for essential discussion, from the ramifications of the European Landscape Convention to the contestation of public spaces in rapidly urbanizing areas.
In the context of the Cultivating the City: Infrastructures of abundance in urban Brazil, I will be attending the Landscape Democracy doctoral course organized by the University of Copenhagen, the Nordic network on Landscape Democracy and the Landscape Architecture and Spatial Planning Planning Group in the Euroleague University Network.
The course will be taught by Anne Whiston Spirn, Shelley Egoz, and Jørgen Primdahl among others. Please check back here for outcomes of the course.
