The European Landscape Convention

No doubt many in Cornwall will now have heard about the Council of Europe's (CoE) framework convention for the protection of national minorities (FCNM) and the vital support it would give to indigenous Cornish culture and heritage if only the UK government agreed to recognised the Cornish as a national minority.

Now though I would like to bring peoples attention to another Council of Europe convention that has potential interest for Kernow.

The European Landscape Convention (ELC) (http://conventions.coe.int/Treaty/Commun/QueVoulezVous.asp? ) has been in force in the UK since 1 March 2007. Specifically included within its scope are the coastal waters and territorial seas of its ratifying states. The ELC contains a range of measures aimed at promoting landscape protection, management and planning, underpinned by principles of sustainable development. It specifically recognises the role of landscape as a basic component of cultural heritage and identity and as an important contributor to quality of life, from which its management is a legitimate object of public interest. It also requires that landscape policies should be integrated with all spheres of government policy.
