Landscape, energy and climate change

Catalonia is fully immersed in a scenario of energy transition. And it is in this process of transition that renewal energies become especially relevant, to the point of creating new energy landscapes unheard of thus far. This new scenario is an opportunity to learn and apply novel ways of relating to contemporary energy landscapes, and to building a new vision of this type of renewal energy.

Main results of the Erasmus+ SAVINGSCAPES project. This project, in which the Observatory participated among other partners from Catalonia, Finland, the Netherlands and Italy, was developed between 2020 and 2023. The main objective of the project was to improve landscape awareness and governance of cultural and natural landscapes through innovative learning interventions at university level, always in a framework based on future scenarios derived from the effects of climate change.
