Final Session WAVE – Erasmus+ project on Water Areas Visions for Europe

Final Session WAVE – Erasmus+ project on Water Areas Visions for Europe

The final session of the WAVE training took place last Friday 28th May 2021. The training, part of the Erasmus+ programme, aims at supporting and establishing partnerships with universities, NGOs, schools and other stakeholders to create integrated knowledge for sustainable landscapes in Europe.

The Erasmus+ program does not only encourages high education students to gain applied experience, but it also strengthens European universities’ collaboration, sharing knowledge, research, and education methods.

The final session was hosted by Ms. Ellen Fetzer from the School for Landscape Architecture, Environment, and Urban Planning at HfWU Nürtingen-Geislingen. With around 128 international participants, the last session concludes with the final presentation of goals and visions on water landscapes and visualizations on possible futures by the WAVE seminar participants. 

The course introduced the Living Labs that will serve as a knowledge base for students and stakeholder engagement. The Living Labs are located in the partner cities in Constanta (RO), Bucharest (RO), Naples (IT), Tartu (EE), Brussels (BE), Freising (DE), and Nürtingen (GE).

The WAVE Erasmus+ project catalyzed the creation of a wide range of diverse perspectives on water landscapes. With the support of the ISOCARP Institute over the last two months, the project served as an insightful exercise to visualize and engage with the complexity of natural river patterns and water systems toward integrated nature-conscious strategies on the territory.

The Institute is eager and looking forward to the second generation of this project in the fall and hopes to build on the findings and research that emerged over the course of the last two months with the WAVE Erasmus+ Project.
