Action for Training in Land use And Sustainability

Objective

ATLAS brings together the expertise of the leading European research, education and training institutions in the area of land use and sustainability impact assessment, combining innovative research efforts and practical experiences, enabling an educational breakthrough required to meet the ambitions of the Sub-priority. The fragmented nature of education and training provision in sustainability impact assessment for land use planning is a major barrier to the management of rapid land use change that is now occurring in Europe. As a result the Commission wishes to: o take stock of what educational resources exist, o assess their adequacy; and, o stimulate the development of appropriate strategies and initiatives for the future. ATLAS will enable the coordin ation and dissemination of educational practice and the development of future training initiatives for policy and practice in this area throughout Europe. It will result in: o A baseline description (on-line data base) of the status of educational provisi on at practitioner's, professional, undergraduate and Master's levels, within Europe; o A SWOT-analysis of the extent to which this provision meets current needs, with clear recommendations for improvement; and, o A 'road-map' for training in land use sust ainability assessment providing better European organisation of the educational provision leading to appropriate professional qualifications. ATLAS will permit the Commission to achieve the mentioned requirements, by bringing together the three leading in ternational networks concerned with sustainable land use management in Europe, namely LANDSCAPE EUROPE, ECLAS and Landscape Tomorrow. These networks have differing focuses within this area but together have a complete coverage of the subject. They moreover benefit from direct participation in relevant IP's, such as SENSOR and SEAMLESS. Improved co-ordination of their efforts on education and training will have great benefits for the effectiveness
