9-10 May 2019, Priorat, Spain
The International Symposium on Landscape, Agriculture and Women aims to create links between landscapes, initiatives and projects from all over the world that work towards the recognition of resilient agricultural models, their feasibility, and the safeguarding of the irreplaceable biocultural capital they represent. The event is organised by Observatori del Paisatge and supported by various local and regional government entities in Catalonia.
In a globalised world, in which the survival of group identities and the necessary connection and exchange strive to exist in harmony, there are resilient agricultural models, which, based on tradition and innovation, show the feasibility of systems that adapt to the idiosyncrasy of the territories and provide the people living in them and building them, day by day, with a dignified living. They are models in which the direct relation between people and their environment is ancestral, present and alive, and in which the role of women is of great importance, both in everyday practice, as well as in transmitting knowledge.
The Symposium is structured into four blocks: values, model, governance and the agricultural cultural landscape of Priorat. The main themes of the Symposium (landscape, agriculture and women) will be presented and worked on in a transversal way in the four blocks.
The Symposium is aimed at a broad, diverse public: inhabitants of Priorat, the rest of Catalonia, Spain, the Mediterranean and the rest of the world, related to agriculture. From farmers to specialists in the main themes that the Congress deals with, as well as the institutions and national and international administrations responsible for the sectorial policies in these areas.
