Special Issue Information
This Special Issue serves as a platform to discuss the phenomenon of cultural landscape resilience and the external pressures connected, among other issues, to climate change. The most pertinent questions to be addressed are as follows: To what extent are the values of cultural landscape able to spontaneously determine its resilience to contemporary transformations? Is landscape resilience possible at all? If so, to what extent and with what tools can it be strengthened? The subject of resilience may refer to various aspects of cultural heritage conservation—environmental aspects such as climate change challenges, as well as legal and spatial/urban planning aspects. The participants of the 29th international scientific conference on the art of gardening and historical dendrology, entitled “Resilient cultural landscape - methods, applications and patterns”, which took place online on 4 November 2022, are particularly encouraged to contribute research to this Special Issue. The topics considered include, but are not restricted to, reflections on the identification of current problems, and challenges in maintaining and preserving the cultural heritage of cities, villages, open spaces and, in particular, historic gardens. It is also important to pay attention to the integrity of the cultural landscape with the continuation of the activity of its anthropogenic determinant, local biodiversity and environmental conditions. These considerations should respond to the appeal of the International Federation of Landscape Architects Europe Resolution Granada, Spain (October 2021), among others, referring to sustainable landscapes. Activities, methods and patterns should be based on promoting the creation of self-sustaining ecosystems used to meet human needs. The main objectives of this Special Issue are the international exchange of research sharing experiences on how to increase the resilience of cultural heritage and the establishment of interdisciplinary cooperation.
