20 years of National Landscape Forum Ireland

Landscape Alliance Ireland - a founding member of CIVILSCAPE - is organising the National Landscape Forum Ireland on 25 June 2015

Dublin – 18 Jun. 2015 | The National Landscape Forum will mark its twentieth anniversary in Dublin on Thursday, June 25. First convened in June 1995 on the cusp of the Celtic Tiger, the twentieth National Landscape Forum is set to kick-start the recently launched ‘stalled before it started’ National Landscape Strategy.

After the boom and bust of the past two decades, the property crash and recent signs of tentative recovery, the event will bring together key landscape stakeholders and players in the Botanic Gardens, Glasnevin, Dublin 9.

Taking part in an interactive presentations and panel discussion will be 25 speakers from Ireland, England, Wales and Scotland, including:

  • Conor Newman, UCG and Heritage Council
  • Conor Skehan, Dublin Institute of Technology
  • Brendan O’Sullivan, University College Cork
  • Martin Colreavy & Willie Cumming, DAHG
  • Terry O’Regan, Landscape Alliance Ireland
  • Helen Lawless, Mountaineering Ireland
  • Tony Williams, Landscape Institute
  • Ian Lumley, Taisce
  • Mansil Miller, Department of Environment Northern Ireland
  • Maggie Roe, Newcastle University
  • Gareth Roberts, Landscape Research Group, Wales
  • Christopher Gallagher, Historic Landscape Consultant

Terry O’Regan, founder and convenor of the National Landscape Forum, said: “The proactive focus will be on how best to deliver effectively on the aspirations of the National Landscape Strategy in a third of the ‘can down the road’ 10 year timeframe suggested by the strategy document. Our landscape is our ultimate resource not only underpinning our sense of place and space, but providing the basis for our food, tourism, craft industries and adding to our attractiveness for inward investment. Above all it’s our landscape, the forum provides the opportunity for society to take ownership of the strategy which will only work if all players and stakeholders are involved. They are welcome to attend and participate.”

Side Notes from National Landscape Alliance: Had the National Landscape Forums of the 1990’s organised by Landscape Alliance Ireland been heeded we might have managed the development explosion of the Celtic Tiger Years in a more sustainable fashion. The National Landscape Strategy if implemented responsibly and with the requisite sense of urgency just might help us to avoid repeating the mistakes of the past. Landscape Alliance Ireland has been pursuing this objective in Ireland and elsewhere in Europe for some 20 years now see http://www.lai-ireland.com
