      Annual Conference Theme

      Landscapes vary. Landscape diversity creates unique local and national value for individuals, business, societies and governments alike. Somewhere too densely populated, somewhere else inhabited incredibly scarcely, and yet somewhere else exploited and abandoned; a sparsely inhabited paradise is an unreachable dream to many in urbanized society.

      Yet, even when finding it, can a modern person fully enjoy it? Tourism is often a rarely realized opportunity to solve many of those contradictions. Images, expectations and reality, extensive use and protection, remoteness and urbanization - many of these dualistic issues are waiting to be discussed to find common understanding and solutions.
