DYCLAM mobility

International organisations such as the UNESCO or European organisations such as the Council of Europe are really concerned about Cultural Landscapes. Indeed, Cultural Landscapes and Heritages are at the very heart of important things that are happening in our world and societies regarding environment, social and economic territorial development. In order to understand the whole concepts and theories related to different fields of study concerned (urban planning, architecture, archeology, geography, environment, economics, anthropology, communication …), transversal know-hows are needed using applied methodologies and fieldworks.
