MedINA in partnership with the American School of Classical Studies at Athens (ASCSA) and the Piraeus Bank Group Cultural Foundation is co-organising a workshop titled “Integrated Landscape Management: Challenges and Prospects”. An issue of great importance, the integrated management of landscapes is a necessary but challenging task which requires multidisciplinary cooperation and joint consideration of the natural and cultural heritage of the area or site in question. The workshop will be held in the premises of ASCSA and specifically at the Cotsen Hall Auditorium on 23rd April 2016. The agenda and information on the speakers can be found here.
The first part of the workshop will make the case about the need for integrated landscape management and the speakers will present case studies from across Greece such as the case of Mount Athos, the Prespa National Park, Pylos and the archaeological site of Philippi.
The second part of the workshop will focus on the challenges and the prospects of integrated landscape management and the speakers will present case studies from the archaeological site of Ancient Corinth, Stymphalia Lake, Karla Lake and the Parrhasian Heritage Park. The participants and speakers will have the opportunity to discuss in plenary at the end of each of the two parts of the workshop.
