Greenways: Corridors of Change and Resilience 5th Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning Budapest, Hungary, 30 June – 3 July, 2016
Organized by: University of Massachusetts Amherst and Corvinus University of Budapest Call for Papers The Fábos Conference on Landscape and Greenway Planning is held every three years to bring together experts who are influencing landscape planning, policy making and greenway planning from the local to international level. It is intended to highlight recent trends and expand the literature about landscape and greenway planning. The aim is to explore how landscape architects and planners from different countries have approached greenway planning and to understand how greenways have been tailored to each county’s unique geographical, cultural, and political circumstances.
The conference provides an opportunity to publish full papers in printed proceedings. The World is in a state of social, economic, political, and ecological change. From global climate change to urbanization, planners and landscape architects are grappling with unprecedented change as they respond to growing demand for limited resources. The theme of Greenways: Corridors of Change and Resilience, underlies each of the Fábos Conference topic areas: Greenway Planning: Planning for linear corridors has occurred across multiple scales – national, state or province and municipal. This track will cover innovations in greenway planning that span research, policy, and practice with a focus on cultural landscape planning, recreational, and ecological corridors. Landscape Planning: Planning for new land uses while protecting ecological integrity and ecosystems. This includes green infrastructure, ecological networks, and urban planning solutions. Landscape Design: An important aspect of planning is the final design and implementation of landscapes along a corridor. This topic area includes park design, urban plazas, cultural and historic sites and other site scale solutions that incorporate the larger planning context.
