Land stewardship is a conservation strategy based on the co-responsibility of land users and landowners to manage and protect land and natural resources, both at the regional and European level.
The Congress name - Land: quality of Life - reflects the need to find a sustainable balance between preserving different land uses and recognising the value of different human activities, and the need to preserve the natural environment, showing how landowners and users, public and private organisations, and civil society all have a key role to play in nature and biodiversity conservation.
The Congress aims to address these new challenges through workshops, round tables and poster presentations. Additionally, a full day field trip is planned on 8 November.
In addition, the Barcelona Declaration on land stewardship will be debated and officially presented during the 07th November 2014 to establish the necessary bases to contribute to the further development of land stewardship at both the regional and the European level.
