About Landscape Functions and People
The course offers participants an opportunity to familiarize themselves with current practices for landscape approaches. It will provide opportunities to develop practical skills and experience in the use of principles and tools applicable for landscape-level planning, monitoring, and implementation.
The course will equip participants to:
  • Understand the context, principles, and relevance of landscape approaches for natural resources governance in today's world
  • Understand how landscape-level planning processes can be developed and how they can be facilitated
  • Become familiar with a variety of tools for landscape-level strategic planning and gain experience in applying and adapting these in real-life situations
  • Understand how landscape approaches can contribute to improved decision making, sustainable management, and monitoring of natural resources
A variety of training approaches will be used. As with all our courses, the style will be participatory and hands-on. Course facilitators will encourage "learning by doing." Participants are expected to bring their own material to the course, allowing them to share their experiences with others. A web-based learning platform supports participants in applying their individual action plans and learning in their work situations.

The training program is spread over two weeks and includes three days of field work in Thailand to gain practical experience and skills.

Your blog is very informative. Eating mindfully has been very hard for people these days. It's all because of their busy schedules, work or lack of focus on themselves. As a student I must admit that I have not been eating mindfully but because of this I will start now. It could help me enjoy my food and time alone. Eating mindfully may help me be aware of healthy food and appreciating food.
