Landscape Perspective

Landscape Perspective

Source of inspiration for conservation and development

The landscape is one of the main ingredients contributing to the unique qualities of the Tri-Country Park. It deserves to be cherished. However, 'locking off' the area is impossible: we want to be able to work, live and enjoy our leisure time here. Are there opportunities for landscape management by farmers? The Landscape Perspective is meant to be a transboundary source of inspiration for the conservation and development of the area's scenic qualities.

The Tri-Country Park project group has taken on the task to draw up this vision and in doing so merges the existing expertise of the project partners. External partners include landscape experts from the RWTH Aachen, University of Ghent, University of Liège, and Wageningen University and Research (WUR). Agricultural, nature and landscaping organisations are also involved in the process.

We do not have to start anew: useful materials have already been collected through other regional initiatives. For example, a Landscape Perspective for South Limburg already exists.

The final product consists of a compact publication with text, images, and a map at scale 1:50,000. Ultimately, the aim is the creation of a Tri-Country Park covenant, modelled after the "Convention du paysage du Pays de Herve", which is to be endorsed by all partners.
