The IALE Executive Committee has unanimously voted to support the Manifesto on the Future of the European Landscape. The Manifesto calls attention to the dynamic circumstances that European landscapes have experienced since 2000. The Manifesto is a commitment to landscape-based policy to safeguard the dynamic identity and diversity of European landscapes. The Manifesto is the result of consultations among the landscape community, following the UNISCAPE Conference “Cultivating Continuity of the European Landscape”, in October 2020. The Manifesto was launched at an international event on 22 October 2021 in Florence, Italy. IALE supports the Manifesto because it can serve as a valuable template for a process and a product that could be emulated throughout the world to support policies that protect the identity and diversity of landscapes.
