The proposal of the chair also builds from the Millennium goals strategy and is aligned with the Sustainable Development Goals for 2030. Although a directly evident link exists with SDG 11, on the sustainability of cities, the relation with all the goals is a fact that results from the nature of the topic of the chair itself, and specific references exist:

  • on the one hand with goals that directly condition the perceptions of humans and thus their actions in the territories (SDG1 No poverty; SDG 2 Zero hunger; SGD 3 Good health and well-being; SDG4 Quality Education; SDG8 Decent work and economic growth; SDG10 Reduced inequalities; and SDG16 on its focus on strong institutions);
  • and on the other on those that directly relate to landscape management (SDG 5 Gender equality, SDG 6 Clean water and sanitation; SDG 7 Affordable and clean energy; SDG 9 Industry, innovation and infrastructure; SDG11 Sustainable cities and communities; SDG12 Responsible consumption and production; SDG13 on the relation to resilience; SDG 14 Life bellow water; SDG 15 Peace, Justice and strong institutions; and SDG 17 on partnerships).


The chair has an applied dimension that directly operates in cultural landscape management contexts. In doing so, it fosters policies of integration (against poverty, hunger, or inequalities; favouring peace, justice and access to health, education or work), global sustainability (water, energy, heritage, consumption and values) and resilience (institution building, urbanism).
