On April 20, in Leuven, Belgium, I presented my experiences with successful co-creative planning projects to researchers and project developers of the Department Omgeving of Vlaanderen – and we had a great discussion on the role of walking, engagement and metaphors in those projects. It became clear that it is crucial to creatively implement the European Landscape Convention searching for ways to understand landscapes “as areas as perceived by people”. It´s a great chance to bring regional landscape planning alive.
