LED (Landscape Education for Democracy) promotes empowerment, participation and active citizenship among young people by directly addressing the topic of participation and active citizenship, thus enhancing relevant competences needed for facing social, cultural and environmental challenges in Europe. LED project focuses on the importance of the practical, everyday application of the principles of the European Landscape Convention, the Aarhus Convention and other key accords that address landscape decision making along democratic principles.
LED is first an interdisciplinary, international course consisting of online lectures and web-based materials aiming at understanding the theoretical foundations of community-based design, public participation and civic engagement for local change. Led is second a collaborative international research team to document local challenges and develop new ideas in a collaborative project.
