Project Aims

WaterSTEAM aims to promote the use of innovative school teaching and students’ learning in relation to the theme of the European Landscape and the role of Water in shaping it.

According to the European Landscape Convention (Council of Europe, 2000), ratified by 40 member states: “Landscape means an area, as perceived by people, whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors”, as a reflection of European identity and diversity, the landscape is our living natural and cultural heritage.

The European Landscape Convention stimulates the European states in active participation in improving the knowledge about landscapes, their characteristics and the forces transforming them.

The project focuses on how water can transform the landscape, applying a multidisciplinary methodology of investigation, consistent with the Convention.
