Abstract

The landscape acknowledgement, the social perception and the landscape dynamism are the major topics of the European Landscape Convention. The landscape is “an area (a part of territory) perceived by people, whose character is the result of the action and interaction of natural and/or human factors” ; further, concerning the ecology dimension, the territory is not characterized by the beauty only, but by the health and biodiversity richness too. The ecological network, as system of connected areas and strips, with natural vegetation, preserves and protects the ecological functions and maintain the biodiversity on the territory. In the last years the ecological network is becoming an important tool in urban and landscape planning to preserve the environment, because it is applicable at many planning levels and at many scale. The ecological network has a significant role in the development policy, especially when it is instrumental in containing the land use. Each contribution from landscape ecology, landscape planning and urban planning is essential to create an interdisciplinary approach in order to preserve the environment. The biodiversity corridor master plan must support the nature preservation, moreover it’s important to enhance social and ecological approach in the open spaces design. Especially the urban park planning and design should be more support by landscape ecology e landscape planning principles. The biodiversity has a major role in landscape transformation , the citizen aware of that, are involved in natural heritage design and management, through consultation and participation actions as forum. Finally the purpose is learning and evaluating which measure are useful to the planners, landscape architects, ecologist, others specialists, politicians and citizen to reach the mentioned approach. The race is about the concept of ecological network that could be a tool to evaluate and sustain the local sustainable development and the green spaces design.
