The Land Stewardship Network of Catalonia, in collaboration with other European organizations, initiated the Life project entitled “Land Life” to communicate the benefits and importance of land stewardship on the environment, ecosystems and our lives .
After three years, the project culminated in the organization of the 1st European Conference on Land Stewardship that will gather in Barcelona, from 5th to 8th November; leading organizations and experts from land stewardship will participate to discuss various areas of stewardship planning, innovative aspects, environmental benefits, communication, legal implications, etc.
The Congress is the starting point for a new European network that will further develop land stewardship in Europe. During the Congress the Barcelona Declaration on Land Stewardship will be elaborated and signed. The Declaration will define the Vision and Mission statement through a collaborative process that will help to identify synergies between actors with the aim to work together for the promotion of land stewardship both at the regional and European level.
Two members of INSTA, Joan Pons and Jordi Recordà, will participate in the Congress offering presentations on ecosystem services and land stewardship, the responsability of the Land Stewardship organisations and New proposals for the river stewardship
