Between 40 and 50 people participated over the course of this event, organized by ITLA, the Landscape Observatory of the Government of the Canary Islands and the Cabildo de La Gomera, including technicians from public institutions of La Gomera, members of local associations, the Biosphere Reserve and the research team of the Canary Islands Landscape Observatory, as well as representatives of institutions from other islands of the archipelago.
The event was a permanent Participatory Action Research (PAR) and Practical Landscape Manual (PLM) Workshop that was developed in La Gomera and aimed at practicing a methodology of knowledge dialogue (knowledge) based on testimonies of farmers and citizens, analyzing the history, the current state and the future of the terraces in different areas of La Gomera. The event was proposed as a permanent activity, starting with a first phase of learning about the theory and method of PAR and PLM (February 2018) and continuing with the application of this methodology during the development of field work
Results were elaborated that were interpreted and exposed during the second phase (until October 2018).
Based on the results obtained in the second phase, this permanent workshop ended (third phase, October 2018) with the proposal and selection of certain places of value and/or interest that will be visited during the field work sessions that will take place in the IV World Congress ITLA.Download Brochure
