The entries are still in process, the e-atlas is still under development
The e-Atlas on European Agricultural Landscapes (EAL) is a joint effort of the Institute for Research on European Agricultural Landscapes e.V. (EUCALAND) and FEAL. The aim is to describe EAL, especially those landscapes which are about to vanish, due to not-use or uniformisation of landscapes - often as a result of either wrong-lead subsidy policy or globalisation, but also due to the marginalisation of locations in sense of economy. The e-Atlas will go beyond pure description, it shall also collect data, illustration and knowledge of European culture, cultural heritage, production methods and habits connected to these agricultural landscapes.
The e-Atlas is based on a participatory working method of little steps. Members of Eucaland describe since 2008 one landscape type per year - according to the same scheme, laid down in the EUCALAND manual. This work will continue and everybody is welcome to participate. There are regular working meetings and publications. For more info, please go to the network's homepage.
If you would like to provide either full descriptions or simply further illustrations, data, maps, please contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
You can also become a full member of EUCALAND and participate in a regular basis at meetings and projects.
