City, Territory, Landscape

That project is the result of the collaboration between the Ministry of Land and Sustainability and the Ministry of Education of the Government of Catalonia and the Landscape Observatory of Catalonia and is aimed at pupils and teachers of secondary schools in Catalonia.


It is an interdisciplinary initiative which offers the chance to work on the natural and human elements of the territory in a comprehensive manner and from the observation of specific, real landscapes, subject to very modern changes and problems. There are two elements to the didactic materials:

1. Folder with 12 panoramic wall charts
Wall charts representing the diversity of the Catalan landscapes.
2. Didactic guide to the project and complementary activities
The guide gives tools and guidance on the work with the pupils and on following up and evaluating the results.

In 2011 the project received a special mention in the Council of Europe's Landscape Awards.
