4th LE:NOTRE Institute Landscape Forum.

** This event is part of the 50th Anniversary Celebrations of ISOCARP
The International Landscape Forum, organized by LE:Notre Institute and hosted by Ion Mincu University for Architecture and Urbanism and the University of Agronomic and Veterinary Medicine in cooperation with two Romanian professional associations for landscape architecture and urban planning (ASoP and APUR), took place 21-25 April in Bucharest, Romania.
The event was attended by more than one hundred and ten participants-educators, researchers planning professionals and administrators who devotedly explored the issues of urban-rural development during 4 thematic workshops:
- Urban Growth and peri-urban Sprawl
- Sustainable Tourism and Recreation
- Heritage and Identities
- Rural Fringe and Productive Landscapes
The event was part of the 50th Anniversary celebration of ISOCARP and our Society participated in several ways. President Milica Bajic-Brkovic delivered a keynote speech, while she and Vice Presidents Piotr Lorens and Gabriel Pascariu participated in the ISOCARP Round Table, organized by VP Gabriel Pascariu. The Society was presented to the participants who expressed a significant interest in ISOCARP, our projects and activities. The presentation was followed by a thematic round table discussion on urban-rural linkages and challenges many transitional countries are nowadays faced with. Download the programme and poster.
The event took place at Ion Mincu University of Architecture and Urbanism where the poster exhibition of the ISOCARP Young Planning Professionals’ presentations was arranged for the occasion.

The interactive and interdisciplinary forum focussed on the landscape of the Colentina lakes that is transecting the northern periphery of Bucharest. Thus the title ‘(Re)Discovering the Emerald Necklace’.
This year we also offered a ‘pre-forum promenade’ which will take you to the outstanding landscape of the Romanian Carpathians. This event was offered in cooperation with Tourism Verde. This association promotes sustainable and ecological tourism, for which Romania has great potential. More information here: http://forum.ln-institute.org/programme/the-pre-forum-promenade/
Last but not least, the LE:NOTRE institute student competition, covering the same area as the forum itself. http://forum.ln-institute.org/get-involved/student-competition/
