    • Global transformation processes, developments towards the planet’s limits to growth, drive systemic landscape change at a global scale; increased frequency of environmental disasters, climate change and migration, affect how people interact with and perceive their everyday surroundings. Shaping these surroundings in a manner that is locally responsive to such challenges is the goal of a landscape architecture which takes a global perspective. Landscape architecture education in a globalized world provides specific skills for working in ways that are sensitive to different socio-cultural and ecological contexts. The programme responds to the dynamic evolution of the landscape profession to navigate the challenges our environment presents. As such, it will train and prepare professionals who will work in designing, planning and managing sustainable and resilient places. Students will learn skills and methods to be equipped when confronted with undeterminable /(unknown) future challenges.
