Just outside of Munich, there are gentle hills covered with fields, meadows and forests. These are treasures for the people living in the city in many ways. However, conflicts and development pressures may threaten the landscape and the possibility to enjoy it. The 7 cities in the LOS_DAMA! partnership (Munich - DE, Grenoble - FR, Vienna - AT, Salzburg - AT, Trento - IT, Turin - IT; Ljubljana - SI) have tested new ways to identify, manage and promote peri-urban landscapes worth of protection. Other Alpine cities can now learn from the LOS_DAMA! toolbox and guidelines how to best develop their own fringe landscape strategy.
