"Knowing more - creating better!"
  Eva Salevid, Fil.mag - Master of Art
What is written on this site has a universal-European "touch" rather than  a currently dominant just "selling a product-"touch". Nevertheless, for fruitful contacts concerning the issues of the European Landsscape Convention some personal information may be requested: Eva Salevid who launched this site 10 years ago got dedicated to the European Landscape Convention (ELC) as a result of a traineeship at the Council of Europe, Division of Spatial Planning and Landscape, Strasbourg, winter/spring 2004.

Before that she had I longer period of work as a teacher at the Université Marc Bloch - now UNIVERSITÉ DE STRASBOURG - FRANCE, where she was a "foreign lecturer", a work that by wandering around brought her to learn lots and lots of interesting things about Regions in Europe around this new century...

She has an exam as Master of Arts (MA) in the French language and civilization, including a course in Project Management on a landscape project, from 2008 and has in the path of a growing landscape been able to hold quite a few lectures (communications, presentations...), mostly in an international context. An activity (=föredrag) that she is certainly interested to pursue also "locally"!

Since 2005 she is part of  Network of Partners for the Implementation of the European Landscape Convention of the Council of Europe.
