Charter of the Landscape of the Americas
IFLA Americas Council and IFLA Charter of the Landscape of the Americas Committee are very happy to share with you the Charter of the Landscape of the Americas. The original document in Spanish was approved in September 2018 during the Regional Council held in the Seminary of Mexican Culture (SCM), in Mexico City, Mexico.
The Charter of the Landscape of the Americas is part of IFLA Global Landscape Initiative developed since 2010 and proudly joins the African Landscape Convention, the IFLA Asia-Pacific Landscape Charter, the IFLA Middle East Declaration on Landscape Approach, all uniting their world voices to the European Landscape Convention developed in 2000.
The Charter of the Landscape of the Americas aims to enrich the reflection and understanding of landscape, providing a definition rooted in this landscape of the Americas, with scope and universal value.
Landscape: portion of a territory apprehended by sensory and intelligible experience of the individual and collective perception that is revealed in a unicum and continuum of living, natural and cultural systems, as a synthetic and interdependent totality, in space and in time.
