Landscape and the local perspective

The local world is increasingly viewing the landscape as an engine for its development and a way to boost the level of citizens' self-esteem, identity and quality of life. Acutely aware of the importance of landscape on the local scale, the Landscape Observatory of Catalonia has promoted several initiatives to know and to share some of the main experiences from around the world related to landscape from a local perspective, making them available to local authorities so as to assess them in terms of landscape preservation, improvement or promotion. Also with this aim in mind, the Observatory has been following the development of several landscape charters and landscape plans in Catalonia.
