Landscape 2021 - Diversity for Sustainable and Resilient Agriculture - Online Conference

Landscape 2021 will bring together scientists from across disciplines with key actors to explore whether and how diversity and diversification can contribute to a more sustainable and resilient agriculture.

Promising approaches reduce trade-offs between high productivity and use of external resources, the provisioning of ecosystem services, biodiversity and soil health as well as robust economic perspectives, social justice, cultural values and recreational opportunities. We hypothesise that while diversification provides sustainable solutions at different scales, it is the landscape or territoriales scale where synergies and trade-offs between social and environmental objectives become tangible.

Conference contributions will include research from natural and social sciences, inter- and transdisciplinary approaches on topics related to the diversification of crop and livestock production systems across scales.

Sessions highlight the state of the art in agricultural landscape research and promote critical exchange on pathways to more resilient and sustainable agriculture. Each session will last 90 minutes and include 3-6 presentations (decided by session organisers).

27 sessions have been selected and are organised in six clusters:

- Cropping and grassland systems
- Farming systems
- Landscape management systems
- Public and private governance systems
- Food systems
- Cross scale systems
- Additional sessions

11 Masterclasses are organised, each will last 3 hours and host about 15-40 participants (prior registration). Masterclasses are interactive sessions to show, learn and discuss new tools, methods or emerging topics in hands-on intensity. They attract senior and junior researchers alike and are an excellent way to spread and test scientific ideas and to reinforce scientific networking. Conference participants are asked to sign up to one of the parallel masterclasses when registering to the conference.
Registration to the masterclasses is open until June 30th, 2021.

A special market place with participation of key actors will be dedicated to presentation and discussion of research products for utilization in practice and policy, such as apps, decision support systems, knowledge systems, new co-operations and the like. (Key actors include farmers, policy representatives and business developing solutions for practice, multipliers and journalists.)
Presenters are invited to book a virtual market place booth until June 30th.

Organisation of post-conference workshops is possible. These are scheduled for September 23rd, 2021.
Presenters of post-conference workshops can register until June 30th, 2021.

Combination of search terms

You can combine search terms with and, or and/or not, e.g. Philo not logy.


You can use brackets to separate combinations from each other, e.g. (Philo not logy) or (Psycho and logy).


Coherent groups of words will be located as complete phrases if you put them into quotation marks, e.g. “Federal Republic of Germany”.

Selection criteria

You can also use the advanced search without entering search terms. It will then follow the criteria you have selected (e.g. country or subject area).

If you have not selected any criteria in a given category, the entire category will be searched (e.g. all subject areas or all countries).
