— not where we wish them to be. Those who plan for the future must understand natural resources and processes. These are the basis of life and the prerequisite for planning the good life (LAF, 1966). Across borders and beyond walls, from city centers to the last wilderness, humanity’s common ground is the landscape itself. Food, water, oxygen – everything that sustains us comes from and returns to the landscape.What we do to our landscapes we ultimately do to ourselves (LAF, 2016). […] The landscape is an important part of the quality of life for people everywhere: in urban areas and in the countryside, in degraded areas as well as in areas of high quality, in areas recognised as being of outstanding beauty as well as everyday areas (EC, 2000). […] ‘Landscape planning’ means strong forward-looking action to enhance, restore or create landscapes (EC, 2000). […] Integrate landscape into […] regional and town planning policies and in […] cultural, environmental, agricultural, social and economic policies, as well as in any other policies with possible direct or indirect impact on landscape (EC, 2000). […] We vow to create places that serve the higher purpose of social and ecological justice for all peoples and all species. We vow to create places that nourish our deepest needs for communion with the natural world and with one another. We vow to serve the health and well-being of all communities (LAF, 2016).
