Why do you think this case is relevant? What is your hypothesis considering the landscape challenges?

  • Format: 3-4 sentences

Location and scope

  • there will be a possibility to enter a google map here (extension still needs to be activated)

A Landscape System Analysis

A.1 Landscape layers and their system context

Geomorphology, landscape units and coastal typology

  • Description of evolution, status quo and driving forces, is the coastal typology changing? Why is that? (approx 200 signs)
  • add 1-2 graphical representations to the image gallery, you can add more if you like

Land use

  • settlements, infrastructure, agriculture, resource extraction, natural areas, energy production...
  • description of evolution, status quo and driving forces, is the land use likely to change? Why is that? (approx 200 signs)
  • add 1-2 graphical representations to the image gallery, you can add more if you like

Green/blue infrastructure

  • What are the major potential elements of a green/blue infrastructure network? Are these likely to change/disappear? Why is that?
  • You find my background material on green infrastructure in our reading list
  • add 1-2 graphical representations to the image gallery, you can add more if you like

Actors and stakeholders

  • Who is driving changes in this landscape? Who is affected by those changes?
  • Draw a stakeholder and/or power map: Who is affected highly but with low power? Who has high power but is not affected?

Sacred spaces and heritage

  • Which places/elements hold cultural value and to whom?
  • You may add a map and some images, please also explain in your caption why these elements are valuable

Visual appearance and landscape narrative

  • Which elements are essential for the landscape character?
  • Has the landscape been painted or otherwise depicted, when and whom? Which elements are essential?
  • Which narratives exist? Who has written about this landscape or depicted it in some way?
  • You can add text and images

A.2 Summary of you landscape system analysis and your development Targets

  • You can summarize your findings with an DPSI(R) Model or a Spider Diagram
  • Link back to the Sustainable Development Goals: Which goals are at risk?
  • What is your hypothesis for this landscape?
  • Visualise your hypothesis with one graphic/pict
  • Are there any existing initiatives taking action in this landscape? Do you have a critical perspective on that?
  • Add text and visuals

A.3 Theory reflection

Students need to reflect on at least three international policy documents in relation to their local landscape case choose one international, one European and one national document

A.4 References

Phase B: Landscape Evaluation and Assessment

B.1 Assessment Strategy

Based on the hypothesis derived from their landscape systems analysis students define the goals for their assessment approach – which elements and phenomena need to be mapped, why and how? Text contribution, max 250 words

B.2 Mapping

As defined by the assessment strategy students conduct mapping and present their maps on the wiki. As a minimum, at least three different themes need to be mapped

B.3 Problem definition and priority setting

Summary of the major findings of the mapping process, what are the problems/potentials identified? Draw a problems/potentials map Set priorities for the most relevant issues

B.4 Theory reflection

Students reflect the assessment and evaluation methods used based on at least three readings, 250 words

B.5 References

Phase C – Strategy and Master Plan

C.1 Goal Setting

Define strategic planning objectives based on the evaluation findings Link back to the original targets (Sustainable Development Goals)

C.2 Spatial Strategy and Transect

Translate your strategic goals into a vision A spatial translation of your vision Exemplify your vision in the form of a transect with concrete interventions Map(s) and visualizations

C.3 From Theory of Change to Implementation

Which partnerships are needed? Which governance model? Who needs to act and how? Draw and explain a change/process model/timeline Which resources are needed? On which assets can you build?

C.4 References

D. Process Reflection

Reflect in your intercultural and interdisciplinary team on the outcomes of your study Which limitations were you facing? What have you learnt from each other? What would you do differently next time? You can also use diagrams/visuals 250 words text
