Why Landscape Matters: Landscape is our support system without which we could not exist. Everyone depends on landscape for food, water, fuel and clean air.
A beautiful and diverse landscape with a wealth of wildlife and human history inspires and enriches our lives and provides a ‘natural health service’ for mind and body. But our fragile landscapes are under threat; from inappropriate infrastructure projects, climate change, uncertainty for upland family farms, and pressures from increasing visitor numbers. Our challenge is to understand, support and enhance them.
Leaders’ Landscape Training is aimed at outdoor practitioners to help deepen your understanding of Cumbria’s landscapes and enable you to pass on your knowledge to those with whom you work.
