Spanish Landscape Architects Association (AEP) signs Collaboration agreement with National Heritage
On January 12, the president of National Heritage, Ana de la Cueva, and the president of the Spanish Association of Landscape Architects (AEP), José Luis Romeu, signed, at the Royal Palace of Madrid, a general protocol of action to specify collaboration in the areas of training, research and dissemination of natural spaces.
In the protocol they undertake to promote dissemination activities through the organization of conferences, seminars, conferences and congresses. The agreement involves both institutions in research and development programs and implies a commitment to cooperate in training programs for technical personnel in environmental matters.
National Heritage manages more than 18,000 hectares of natural spaces that in 2022 have received more than two and a half million visitors. Samples of its rich landscape are the Royal Site of Aranjuez, whose gardens are part of the UNESCO declaration as World Heritage Cultural Landscape, and the Riofrio forest, included in the Natura 2000 Network and a special protection area for birds (ZEPA). .
The AEP, founded in 1957, promotes, through its activities, the conservation and improvement of the landscape. It discloses its importance as an essential element of the human environment, an expression of the diversity of its common, cultural and natural heritage as the foundation of its identity.
