The INICIATIVA LATINO AMERICANA DEL PAISAJE LALI is promoting the seminar, still is open PLEASE JOIN IT!

As urban sprawl and landscape fragmentation continue worldwide the concept of green infrastructure has gaining increased attention from policy, research and practice. In a nutshell, green infrastructure (GI) aims at enhancing the connectivity, stability and productivity of green in its widest sense. 
Contact: Dr.-Ing. Ellen Fetzer  email: ellen.fetzer(at)

Landscape architecture has been promoting such integrated approaches but is of course not the only profession concerned with this task. In this seminar, we will explore how the concept is currently been understood by various European and international representatives. We will hear about case studies from both professional practice and research and reflect on the wider societal and environmental impact of green infrastructure.
The seminar is addressed to a worldwide target group of landscape architecture students or students from neighboring disciplines interested in learning jointly about this emerging professional and academic field. Neighboring disciplines are explicitly invited to attend as the subject depends on a multi-disciplinary approach.

People can register in active and passive mode, depending how intensively they wish to get involved. Active participants can get up to 3 ECTS and a grade and would receive a certificate from us. In return we expect a donation of 20 Euro for the LE: NOTRE institute from each participant who receives a certificate, the listen-only mode is free. The registration period

The International Congress "Culture: A Key to Sustainable Development" will be held in Hangzhou (China) from 15 May to 17 May 2013. This is the first International Congress specifically focusing on the linkages between culture and sustainable development organized by UNESCO since the Stockholm Conference in 1998.  As such, the Congress will provide the very first global forum to discuss the role of culture in sustainable development in view of the post-2015 development framework, with participation of the global community and the major international stakeholders.
