European Landscapes for Quality of Life ?

3-9 september 2018

The 28 th session of the PECSRL biennial international conference – " European Landscapes for Quality of Life ?" – will be held in 2018, at two locations : Clermont-Ferrand and Mende. This general theme encompasses the interactions between quality of landscapes, quality of food and quality of life, the importance of re enrooting food to place as an alternative to the globalization and Health and quality of life in connection with landscapes.

It will be hosted by the research group “territoires”, an interdisciplinary unit that gathers geographers, economists, agronomists, social and politic scientists from 5 institutions (Agro Paris Tech, Clermont Auvergne University, INRA, IRSTEA, VetAgro Sup).

The conference brings together geographers, landscape architects, historians, ethnographers, archaeologists, ecologists, rural planners, landscape managers and other scholars interested in European landscapes. The conference offers ample facilities to meet colleagues from all parts of Europe, to get informed about various aspects of European landscape research and to initiate new projects. In addition to paper sessions, poster presentations, workshops and plenary sessions, there will be one full day of field trips to provide the PECSRL participants with a detailed knowledge of some rural landscapes in the Massif central.
