Cornwall Landscape Observatory

You are cordially invited to attend the launch of the Cornwall Landscape Observatory on Wednesday 30th November 2011. Sponsored by The Centre for European Research within Cornwall (CERES) and hosted by Truro College.

The Cornwall Landscape Observatory is an exploratory project working to understand and implement the idea of appreciating landscape as an asset to help children and young people integrate into their disadvantaged neighbourhood; and secure access to their social rights

The project was conceived by CERES at the Council of Europe’s Cultural Heritage Division and born of our longstanding association with the Council of Europe’s Congress of Local and Regional Authorities of Europe (CLARE). The idea was then adapted to suit the Cornish situation through our contributions to the Council’s Disadvantaged Neighbourhoods Programme, Resolution 319 on the Integration of Young People from Disadvantaged Neighbourhoods and The Council of Europe’s Enter! Programme on Young People’s Access to their Social Rights and our recent association with the Observatori del Paisatge de Catalunya (Catalonian Landscape Observatory).

Students from a variety of disciplines and age groups will introduce their perspectives on landscape followed by plenary sessions at this one-day seminar. The outcomes of the seminar will be placed on a dedicated website and we will work to develop a Cornish Landscape Observatory through our European connections.

We expect that Maguelonne Déjeant-Pons Head of the Cultural Heritage, Landscape and Spatial Planning Division at the Council of Europe will attend the seminar and we cordially invite you to register your interest by email to Mr. John Fleet of the CERES secretariat at: johnfleet1924@btinternet.com
