Exploring Landscape Boundaries – Open Seminars
Established at the EMÜ (Estonian University of Life Sciences), Chair of Landscape Architecture, the monthly ELB seminars bring together scientists, specialists, researchers, explorers, and students from different disciplines to talk about their work on the topic of landscapes.
