Our Goals: to provide scientific guidance on threats and opportunities for natural and cultural values of Europe’s landscapes; define criteria for assisted restoration of ecosystems of former (abandoned) agricultural areas; generate future scenarios for cultural landscape change, with integrated landscape, cultural heritage and biodiversity models, to inform current planning initiatives, e.g. for the transition to a low-carbon society.
