"From knowledge of landscapes to landscaping action" 

International conference 

Bordeaux, 2-4 December 2004 

First announcement and call for papers 

This conference is organised by the French Ecology and Sustainable 

Development Ministry with support of Cemagref. It will mark the 

conclusion of a French national research programme started in 1998 and 

the conference will focus on a comparison of the programme's results 

with those attained in other European countries through similar 


Focus and objectives of the conference 

The European Landscape Convention signed in Florence in October 2000 is 

proof of an increasing interest in the issue of landscapes. This 

interest is, however, more evident in political action than in research. 

The ideologies driving both politicians and NGOs focus on conceptions of 

landscape which are within the scope of ecology, national heritage, or a 

more societal framework. Is this concern emerging at a European scale a 

sign of a specific European apprehension of landscape? The diversity of 

motives and concepts underlying action reflects the many concepts of the 

landscape being developed in the field of research. 

The aim of this colloquium is to bring together researchers from all 

over Europe for an update on the concepts and scientific methods 

implemented. It will also try to provide answers to questions about the 

effects of public policies on landscapes. 

The transposition of knowledge into political action will be one of the 

cross-functional lines of exploration encompassing the themes proposed. 

What in fact happens to the concepts and notions often elaborated by the 

scientific community when they go beyond cognitive production to serve 

action? Furthermore, are they operational for action? 

The second cross-functional avenue is the time factor: the time-frames 

necessary for the production of landscapes, the time involved in the 

change of social representations, the political time, the time needed 

for decisions to be implemented. 

This scientific meeting will be organised along four main themes: 

1) Public policies and landscapes. 

This theme looks for evidence about the kinds of policies that support 

landscapes in an effective, efficient and sustainable manner. Expected 

papers should stress the conceptions of landscape underlying political 

action, the networks of protagonists involved in the operations and 

their working, the specific features of the existing legislative and 

legal frameworks in the various countries, the economic assessment of 

public policies, and the effects of policies on the material structures 

of landscapes. The practical use of political instruments and the impact 

of those policies on various kinds of landscapes could also be 


2) The place of the landscape in environmental policies. 

The environment and landscape do not cover the same fields of meaning 

or action, even if there are connections between the two notions. Papers 

must first and foremost address the conceptual relationships between 

environment and landscape. 

The place of the landscape in environmental policies can subsequently 

be addressed. 

Agri-environmental measures, the connections between biodiversity and 

landscape or between landscapes and sustainable development, the 

management and exploitation of natural resources, can be analysed as an 

example. Moreover, the question may well be raised as to whether the 

landscape can prove to be an asset and a tool for local development. 

3) The place of the landscape in urban policies. 

Some specialists claim that landscaping makes it possible to renew the 

way in which the city, urbanism and management of public spaces are 

thought out and developed. How is landscaping taken into the equation in 

urban policies across Europe? Does it fundamentally serve the cause of 

social welfare? What is the place of nature in town? What are the 

relationships between cities and rural areas regarding landscape? 

4) Civil society, participation in decision-making, governance. 

Citizens' participation in the development of their environment is now 

a recurrent objective in regional development policies. How can civil 

society be made aware of the question of the improvement of its living 

conditions and contribute to it through the mobilisation of the concept 

of landscape? At what scales? What are the most efficient tools to help 

public participation (photography, scenarios,*)? 

The papers can deal with any one of the above themes, or propose 

cross-functional analyses. Case studies and the definition of "good 

practices" are welcomed.
