Station 2: In Detail …“How does an untouched forest look like?”

The four landscape installations replace the former nature trail through a piece of forest in Vienna’s Zoo Schönbrunn and reflect four different aspects characterizing woodlands: dynamics, diversity, sustainability and cultural significance. The aim of the concept is to arouse interest through sensuous experience, to simultaneously stimulate reflection and communicate knowledge. Through this contemporary dialogue, the real experience remains central.

Landscape Institute President sends open letter to UK Prime Minister

Flooding in York | February 16, 2014

Over the last few months, the UK has seen continual flooding which has seen a great deal of discussion on how to deal with the water management in the UK. Recently, Sue Illman President of the Landscape Institute has sent an open letter to Prime Minister, Rt Hon David Cameron MP.  The letter signed by 12 organisations calls for a complete rethink of water management to prevent the effect of water on villages, towns and cities of the England and Wales.

The letter goes on to call for ” an immediate cross departmental conference with DECC, DEFRA, DCLG, the EA and NRW, in a similar manner to that which was convened to address the problem of ash-dieback.”. It also calls for proper exploration of the larger catchment management issues, and how forestry, land management and soft engineered flood alleviation schemes can hold back water in the upper reaches of rivers, and work alongside a dredging programme in the lower reaches.

The letter was also sent to the Rt Hon Owen Paterson MP, Anne McIntosh MP and Lord Smith, chairman of the Environment Agency.
