First Landscape Ecology European Congress to bring together top brains from across the world

Professionals from around the world will converge on Manchester for the first Landscape Ecology European Congress next month.

More than 300 delegates from a variety of disciplines and travelling from as far afield as China and Australia will pool their knowledge and examine how and why European landscapes are changing.

The conference is hosted by the International Association for Landscape Ecology and organised by Countryscape, is the first of its kind to be held in the UK, between 9 and 12 September at Manchester Metropolitan University’s Business School.

The association considers landscape ecology to be at the heart of public debate over our environment – from climate change and sustainable farming, to energy production and infrastructure.

Delegates will inform their discussions with visits to cutting edge landscape projects in and around Manchester.

The group, set to include professionals from social science, community planning, biodiversity and genetics, will also work on a landscape ecology plan to improve Greater Manchester - a present to the host city.

After the conference the delegates will visit some of Britain’s best natural landscapes in the Peak District National Park on 13 September.

Congress registration is open until the end of August. For more information go to
