This award-winning, two day multi-disciplinary CPD training module is an initiative of the Heritage Council of Ireland, developed in partnership with Clare County Council, Engineers Ireland (EI), Institute of Archaeologists of Ireland (IAI), Institute of Ecology and Environmental Management (IEEM), Irish Landscape Institute (ILI), Irish Planning Institute (IPI), the Landscape Observatory of Catalonia, the Royal Society of Ulster Architects (RSUA), the Royal Institute of the Architects of Ireland (RIAI) and the Royal Town Planning Institute (RTPI)

This CPD training course will be of value to those whose professional work impinges on the Irish landscape. This includes planners, landscape architects, archaeologists, ecologists, architects and engineers. Such individuals might – for example - be working for a local authority or in private practice. 
Such a broad group will clearly come to this training with a range of different agendas and starting points. One of the key benefits of this multi-disciplinary approach – rather than working only with colleagues from your own discipline – is that we can focus on the way the professions may perceive and value different aspects of the landscape in different ways.  Landscape provides the context for all these groups, and understanding why we may have different perspectives will be a valuable outcome from this training.
